Taxonomic notes
Silva, Basson & Moe (1996): "The second hint is in the protologue of F. tendo, in which Linnaeus cited Fucus indicus teres, setam piscatoriam referens, longissimus Plukenet (1696: 160; 1692: pl. CLXXXIV: fig. 3), but he gave the provenance as China. Fucus tendo has been shown to apply to inanimate material." - (23 Aug 2009) - M.D. Guiry
