Nomenclatural notes
The following is from Taxon vol. 52, p. 340: "(1469) Conserve the name Platoma (Rhodophyta) as being of neuter gender (proposed by A. Athanasiadis in Taxon 49: 809. 2000). Votes 12 : 0 : 2 (recommended). The author of the proposal convincingly shows that in current literature Platoma has been given both feminine and neuter genders. The Committee agrees that a definite choice of the gender should be made by conservation and therefore recommends that the name Platoma be conserved as being of neuter gender. However we cannot accept the change of authorship proposed by the author since we can see nothing like an indirect reference (even cryptic) to Nemastoma sect. Platoma J. Agardh in F. Schmitz 1889. Therefore the Committee recommends conservation of Platoma as being of neuter gender, with its ING authorship: Platoma Schousb. ex F. Schmitz in Nuova Notarisia 5: 627. Apr 1894."

Habitat notes
In the lower intertidal zone to depths of 18 m; epilithic and generally attached to the sides or at the base of rocks in relatively low light conditions and in places of moderate wave action; frequently associated with encrusting Corallinaceae, sometimes on top of patches of Codium adhaerans and less frequently among Corallina tufts (Gabriel et al. 2010). - (1 Mar 2010) - Wendy Guiry

Attached to rocky substrata at depths of 5-20 m (Berecibar et al. 2009: 223). - (22 Mar 2010) - Wendy Guiry

General environment
This is a marine species.
