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 lanceolata (Setchell & Hus) S.C.Lindstrom

Basionym
Porphyra perforata f. lanceolata Setchell & Hus

Type information
Lectotype locality: Land's End, San Francisco, California (Lindstrom & Cole 1992: 435). Lectotype: H.T.A. Huss; 8 February 1899; UC MO 24356 (Sutherland et al. 2011: 1144). Notes: Lindstrom & Cole (1992: 433, 435) note that Krishnamurthy (1972) lectotypified Porphyra perforata f. lanceolata, the basionym of Porphyra lanceolata, with UC 95720 (collected by Setchell in Carmel Bay, California on 11.i.1899) but that it does not accord with Smith's description and with the major portion of Setchell & Hus's description. They choose instead MO 24356 in UC as lectotype.

Origin of species name
Adjective (Latin), lance-shaped.
