Sphaerococcus palmetta var. bifidus
Sphaerococcus palmetta var. bifidus Lyngbye 1819: 12
Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Fimbrifolium dichotomum (Lepechin) G.I.Hansen
No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.
Lyngbye’s combination is based on an illegitimate name (Fucus bifidus Hudson, non Fucus bifidus Gmelin 1768: 201) and therefore this taxon should be ascribed to Lyngbye (Athanasiadis, 1996).
This is a marine species.
