Type species
This is the type species (holotype) of the genus Bostrychia.

Status of name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.

Basionym
Fucus scorpioides Hudson

Type information
Type locality: "Habitat in littore Sussexiano; at Selsey-Island plentifully. Dr Dill[enius]. R. Syn. [Selsey, Sussex, England] (Hudson 1762: 471). Notes: Selsey (meaning Seal Island) West Sussex was once an island. It is likely that the type was collected in the saltmarshes west of Selsey Bill by Dillenius. Dixon & Irvine (1982: 96) selected as "holotype" the illustration in Ray (1724: pl. 2: fig. 6) on the basis that Hudson based his description on Ray. The material upon which the illustration is based is in Dillenius's herbarium at OXF). Art 9.1 [Melbourne Code] specifies "A holotype of a name of a species or infraspecific taxon is the one specimen or illustration [prior to 2007] used by the author, or designated by the author as the nomenclatural type."

Nomenclatural notes
Note from Algae-L (posted by M. J. Wynne, 1 July 2005): "The genus Bostrychia goes back to Montagne in Ramon de la Sagra (1842) Historia...de la Isla de Cuba. But in that publication (vol. 8: 39) Montagne did not make the combination for any species that he was assigning to his new genus. Montagne (in the same year, 1842) also contributed the entry of Bostrychia in C. d'Orbigny's Dictionnaire universel d'histoire naturelle, vol. II: 661, and there he made 5 transfers to Bostrychia: B. scorpioides, B. calamistrata, B. radicans, B. calliptera, and B. floccosa. This entry runs on pp. 660-661 is authored by 'C. M.' = Camille Montagne. This Dictionnaire was 13 volumes of text and 3 volumes of the atlas (= 288 pls). Its publication dates are 1841-1849 according to the on-line New York Public Library as well as the on-line Mo. Bot. Gard. Library, or possibly 1842-1849 according to the on-line New York Bot. Gard. Library. Vol. II of this Dictionnaire in the University of Michigan Library has '1849' on the title page, but that title page must have been printed when the series was completed. Paul Silva's card in his on-line Index Nominum Algarum indicates the date of vol. II of the Dictionnaire to be 1842 because it was cited in Oct. of that year in the Ann. Sci. Nat., Bot., ser. 2, 18: 253. So I believe that the evidence is that Montagne in 1842 made the comb. nov. of Bostrychia scorpioides, and is the author, not Kützing in 1849. King & Puttock (1989, Aust. Syst. Bot., p. 9) also credited Montagne (1842). "

Taxonomic notes
Day et al. (1995: 252) records this species as being a synonym of Bostrychia harveyi.

General environment
This is a marine species.

Habitat
On muddy shores near high-water mark, on lower stems of saltmarsh flowering plants, widely distirbuted, locally abundant.
