Schneider (2003: 324) noted: "When preparing his western Atlantic flora, Taylor (1960) mentioned the “impracticability of a thorough check” of all of Grunow’s (1915-1916) materials. As he apparently did not observe Sargassum peregrinum, he included this taxon in his lengthy section of “Uncertain Records” of Sargassum, assuming it would probably be placed in one of the numerous species known for Bermuda or the Caribbean. Until it is definitively shown to be a synonym of another earlier named Sargassum, there is no legitimate reason to remove this “endemic” from the flora." - (28 Jun 2017) - M.D. Guiry
