Nomenclatural notes
Stackhouse (1802: xxxvi) "The Examination of the LINNEAN Herbarium has enabled me to correct an error. The Plant delineated and defcribcd by me under this Title is one of the sportive varieties of F. crispus [i.e., Chondrus crispus]." - (20 Jan 2017) - M.D. Guiry

Spencer et al. (2009: 249): "This name potentially threatens Chondrus crispus, Mastocarpus stellatus (Stackh.) Guiry or Phyllophora pseudoceranoides (S.G. Gmelin) Newroth & A.R.A. Taylor and may, therefore, be a candidate for rejection (Art. 56.1)." The name has not been formally typified by Spencer et al. (2009: 249), although Stackhouse's somewhat ambiguous comment perhaps constitutes a lectotypification. - (20 Jan 2017) - M.D. Guiry
