Type species
The type species (holotype) of the genus Ecklonia is Ecklonia buccinalis (Linnaeus) Hornemann.

Status of name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.

Basionym
Laminaria radiata C.Agardh

Type information
Type locality: "New Holland" (Womersley 1987: 332). Type: LIV (Womersley 1987: 332).

Origin of species name
Adjective (Latin), radiate.

Homotypic Synonym(s)
Laminaria radiata C.Agardh 1817
Capea radiata (C.Agardh) Endlicher 1843

Heterotypic Synonym(s)
Fucus radiatus Turner 1808
Laminaria flabelliformis A.Richard 1832
Capea biruncinata var. denuda Sonder 1846
Capea biruncinata var. elongata Sonder 1846

Nomenclatural notes
John et al. (2004) cite the authority for this species as "(Turner) J. Agardh". Fucus radiatus Turner, the supposed basionym is, however, an illegitimate name.

Taxonomic notes
According to Silva et al. (1996) the name Laminaria flabellata was misapplied to this species by Drege (1843: 156, 159, 197) and possible misapplied names for this species include Capea biruncinata, Ecklonia biruncinata and Ecklonia radiata forma biruncinata. Please consult the original text for a full listing of the authors.

General environment
This is a marine species.
