Origin of species name

Phyllona crispata (Kjellman) Kuntze 1898
The type of Porphyra crispata is referable to Monostroma nitidum (see Yamada in Yoshida 1998). Records of this species refer to Porphyra yamadae Yoshida. - (10 Aug 2009) - M.D. Guiry
This is a marine species.
(as Porphyra crispata Kjellman)
Chinese: Zi-cai (Arasaki & Arasaki 1983).
Japanese: Tsukushi-amanori (Arasaki & Arasaki 1983).
Type locality: Goto-retto, Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan (Silva, Basson & Moe 1996: 92). Type: J.V. Petersen; (Silva 1996-to date Notes: Yoshida (1997: 166, 167) notes that Kurogi and Yamadae (1986) pointed out that the type specimen of Porphyra crispata Kjellman 1897: 15 was not a red alga, but proved to be Monostroma nitidum Wittrock. They also note that Ueda (1932) applied the name P. crispata to a species of Porphyra distributed in the southern parts of Japan and that he gave a detailed description and figures. Okamura (1936) and Tanaka (1952) have used this name. A new name is necessary for P. crispata sensu Ueda.
