Type information
Syntype localities: Jakarta, Java, Indonesia; Singapore (Silva, Basson & Moe 1996: 697). Type: LD. Herb. Alg. Agardh 3260 (Yoshida 1998: 407). Notes: Phang et al. (1995: 56) note the following: The holotype specimen from Singapore as described by Agardh (1848) cannot be located. Agardh did not state the sex of the type specimen, but Ang and Trono (1987) reported that the material in the Agardh Herbarium (LD, Herbarium Agardh No. 3260, lectotype) is male. Yamada (1942) mentioned male and female receptacles, and Ang and Trono (1987) and Trono (1992) emphasized the "strongly triquetrous and twisted female receptacles" as the distinguishing feature of S. siliquosum. According to Tseng & Lu (1992: 20), the type locality is Singapore.
