Woelkering et al. (2005: 466): "... originally described as Lithothamnion novaezeelandiae (Heydrich 1897a: 63), but Foslie (Foslie 1908c: 270) suggested that this taxon was poorly known but that Heydrich%u2019s material involved two species, one of which possibly was L. patena. Woelkerling & Nelson 2004: 83 considered the status and disposition of Lithothamnion novaezeelandiae to be uncertain]. Type: apparently not designated (Woelkerling & Nelson 2004: 83), and original material probably destroyed (Stafleu & Cowan 1979: 187). TRH, however, has one syntype (C17-3329) - (21 Aug 2015) - M.D. Guiry
This is a marine species.
Type locality: Bay of Islands, New Zealand (Woelkerling et al. 2005: 466). Syntype fragments: No collector data; no date; no habitat data on type. TRH C17-3329 (Woelkerling et al. 2005: 466).
