Type species
The type species (lectotype) of the genus Porphyra is Porphyra purpurea (Roth) C.Agardh.

Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Pyropia perforata (J.Agardh) S.C.Lindstrom

Origin of species name
Adjective (Latin), pierced with holes or pores or sprinkled with translucent dots (Stearn 1973).

Heterotypic Synonym(s)
Porphyra sanjuanensis V.Krishnamurthy 1972

General environment
This is a marine species.

Common names

(as Porphyra perforata J.Agardh)
?: Ihekesten, Ihekas Atlebal, Summer Seaweed (Madlener 1977).

Chinese: Chi Choy (Madlener 1977).

English: Red Laver (Arasaki & Arasaki 1983).

Common names used in commerce, often for edible algae
; "laver, common purple"; "purple laver, common"

Type information
Lectotype locality: near the Golden Gate, San Francisco, California, USA (Sutherland et al. 2011: 1144). Lectotype: S. Berggren; 1874; LD (Herbarium Agardh) 13037 (Sutherland et al. 2011: 1144). Notes: According to Dawson (1953: 17) specimens from Santa Barbara and from San Francisco were illustrated. Conway (1974:174-176) notes that LD 13037 (one of two Berggren specimens) was designated (but not published) as the lectotype by R.F. Scagel in 1957. She is "entirely in agreement with Scagel's selection of it as the lectotype" and considers specimens LD 13031 and 13048, collected by Mrs Bingham at Santa Barbara to be syntypes.
