Basionym
Callithamnion microscopicum Nägeli ex Kützing

Type information
Type locality: "Golfo di Napoli, Italy" [Holotype from Torquay, England] (Kützing 1849: 64-). Holotype: L 940, 285 ... 306 (Womersley 1994: 61). Notes: Athanasiadis (1996:18) and Womersley (1994: 61) cite Torquay, Devon, England as the type locality of this species. Woelkerling (1972: 86) notes that although Kützing (1849: 640) cited the Bay of Naples as the type locality, Hamel (1927; 1928) has indicated that the type collection came from Torquay, England and is represented by specimen 454 in Hauck and Richter's "Phykotheca Universalis". The type specimen in the Kützing collections at L contains only plants collected by Naegeli in England (identical to those distributed in Hauck and Richter) and none from the Bay of Naples.

Origin of species name
Adjective (Latin), microscopic (Stearn 1973).
