Type information
Type locality: "Ad oras occidentales novae Hollandiae" [Western Australia] (Agardh 1822: 358). Holotype: PC? Notes: Agardh (1822: 358) clearly says "Vidi in collectione Musaei Parisiensis" so the holotype should be in PC and the "lectotype" (Womersley 2003: 470), which did not include the required "designated here", in LD (herb. alg. Agardh 36488) is probably a duplicate of the holotype.

No distributions recorded
No distributional records for this taxon have been recorded by AlgaeBase to date. Generally, recent national lists or extensive regional or state lists have been employed to give a general indication of distribution.
