Nomenclatural notes
"Woelkerling & al. (2015a, b) provided a new detailed account of the lectotype of J. crassa and formally proposed rejection of J. verrucosa after finding it was a name of uncertain nomenclatural application." (Woelkerling, Harvey & Reviers 2015: 1286). - (14 Jan 2016) - M.D. Guiry

General environment
This is a marine species.

Habitat
Almost entirely epilithic, occurring in shallow eulittoral pools or on rocks near low tide level (Womersley & Johansen in Womersley 1996: 307).

Type information
Type locality: "Amérique Méridionale Det. Richard et Pavon." (Lamouroux 1816: 270). Notes: Lectotype: Lamouroux figures (1816: pl. IX [9]: fig. 4 "a" and "B") selected by Woelkerling, Harvey & Reviers (2015: 141) who consider it resonable to select both illustrations in Lamouroux's fig. 4.
