Athanasiadis (1987: 44) notes: “C. lomation appears to be closely related to the Atlantic C. seminervis (C. Ag.) J. Ag., and judging from the treatment of this species in the British flora (Irvine & Farnham 1983: 20) as well as previous floristic accounts (Ardré 1970) the two algae should be regarded as being conspecific.” However, Silva, Basson & Moe (1996) treat the two entities separately. Should they be regarded as taxonomically identical, C. lomation appears to have nomenclatural priority (M.D. Guiry, July 2002).
This is a marine species.
Type locality: "Adhaeret saxis, et conchia in fundo maria Portus Lunae. Peren." [Adhering to stones and shells in the subtidal of Port Luna; perennial. Luna is currently known as Luni, a frazione of the comune (municipality) of Ortonovo, province of La Spezia, in the easternmost end of the Liguria region of northern Italy] (Bertoloni 1818: 289).
