Published in: Hommersand, M.H., Fredericq, S., Freshwater, D.W. & Hughey, J. (1999). Recent developments in the systematics of the Gigartinaceae (Gigartinales, Rhodophyta) based on rbcL sequence analysis and morphological evidence. Phycological Research 47: 139-152.
Status of name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.
Rhodoglossum coriaceum E.Y.Dawson
Type locality: Punta Descanso, Baja California, Mexico. (Dawson 1961: 257). Holotype: Dawson 97-45; April 8, 1945.; Tidal channels on the reef two miles north of Punta Descanco. UC Notes: Type in UC fide INA (26.xii.2005).
Hughey, Silva & Hommersand (2001), based on ITS 1 sequence data and vegetative and reproductive morphology, showed that M. coriacea (E. Y. Dawson) J. Hughey is distinct from Iridophycus coriaceum Setchell et Gardner, which Hughey et al. (2001) confirmed is a synonym of Mazzaella splendens.
Found from Monterey, California, USA to Punta Maria, Baja California, Mexico.
This is a marine species.
