Sargassum tenue var. capillare (Kützing) Grunow 1915
According to Silva et al. (1996: 662) two taxa (Sargassum tenue var. fuscescens Grunow and Sargassum tenue var. gardneri Grunow) which apparently lie within the circumspection of this species, have not been cited subsequent to their proposal. See Lipkin & Silva (2002: 51).
This is a marine species.
Type locality: "Im Indischen Ocean" (Tranquebar, Tamil Nadu, India) (Silva, Basson & Moe 1996: 661). Notes: Silva et al. (1996) recommend consulting Grunow (1915: 374) for more information on the type locality of this species.
