This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.
Subgenus Sargassum Section Ilicifolium
No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.
Not formally named in 1931 paper; formally described in 1933 paper.
Stiger et al. (2000: 256, 258) note that their results based on ITS-2 sequences comparisons showed that S. mcclurei and S. quinhonense presented little divergence in ITS-2 sequences. In spite of this similarity, they assume that these are two distinct species. See note for S. phyllocystum.
In section Ilicifolium (formerly in section Phyllocystae). - (9 Aug 2010) - Wendy Guiry
