Type species
The type species (holotype) of the genus Polysiphonia is Polysiphonia urceolata (Lightfoot ex Dillwyn) Greville.

Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Melanothamnus harveyi (Bailey) Díaz-Tapia & Maggs

Eponomy
Named for William Henry Harvey (1811-1866), Irish botanist.

Synonym(s)
No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.

Distributional notes
Introduced into Europe, although there are some differences of opinion as to the exact date (Stegenga et al., 1997). According to Maggs and Hommersand 1993 Polysiphonia violacea from Helgoland (Kornmann and Sahling 1978) is Neosiphonia harveyi; thus this species is present on Helgoland for at least 36 years.

General environment
This is a marine species.
