Status of name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.
Named for Eugène Vieillard (1819-1896), a French naval surgeon and naturalist who collected in New Caledonia and Tahiti and was director of the Jardin Botanique de Caen.
No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.
Millar & Prud'homme van Reine (2005: 540) note that the type specimen is fragmented and badly preserved and thus difficult to identify with certainty. Judging from Kützing's illustrations figs 3c, d), this species does appear to represent a species of the Callithamnion group.
No habitat entry has yet been made for this entity.
Millar & Prud'homme van Reine (2005: 540) note that this species has monosiphonous, ecorticated axes with one lateral borne alternately on each axial cell.
Type locality: New Caledonia (Millar & Prud'homme van Reine 2005: 540). Holotype: Vieillard; L 938,92-234 (barcode L 0055703) (Millar & Prud'homme van Reine 2005: 540).
