Neosiphonia paniculata (Montagne) J.N.Norris 2014
Polysiphonia californica Harvey 1853
Díaz-Tapia (2017: 23) write "Polysiphonia paniculata was transferred to Neosiphonia (Norris, 2014), but again it is not in the Melanothamnus clade (Figs 1, 2)." - (3 Feb 2017) - M.D. Guiry
Vertebrata? The position of Polysiphonia paniculata in rbcL and 18S trees are not congruent. This suggests that these two sequences, generated from samples from Chile and California, respectively, were obtained from different species (Díaz-Tapia et al., 2017). - (4 May 2017) - Wendy Guiry
This species was introduced accidentally, probably via shipping, into the Mediterranean (Verlaque et al. 2015: 187), being first found in the Etang de Thau (France) in 1967. - (5 Nov 2015) - M.D. Guiry
This is a marine species.
