Chauvinia microphysa Kützing

Publication details
Chauvinia microphysa Kützing 1863: 11

Taxonomic notes
According to Millar & Prud'homme van Reine (2005: 537) Kützing's New Caledonian species, if transferred to the genus Caulerpa, cannot retain the epithet C. microphysa as it would become a later homonym of C. microphysa (Weber-van Bosse) Feldmann 1955(= Caulerpa racemosa v. clavifera f microphysa Weber-van Bosse 1898). On morphological characters, however, Chauvinia microphysa appears to be conspecific with the earlier described Caulerpa lentillifera J. Agardh.
