Type species
This is the type species (lectotype) of the genus Callithamnion.

Status of name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.

Basionym
Conferva corymbosa Smith

Type information
Type locality: Brighthelmston, Sussex, England (Silva, Basson & Moe 1996: 897). Lectotype: Borrer; July 1811; BM-K (Dixon & Price 1981: 137). Notes: Other type localities: Kingsbridge, coll. Gibbs; Bantry Bay, coll. Hutchins (Smith, 1911, pl.2352). Comments: Harris (1966) quoted the type locality as Kingsbridge and cited as holotype a specimen “in the British Museum of Natural History, no. 271". The original treatment is based on three collections, so that holotype status for any specimen is impossible. It would appear that this author was misled by the seven irrelevant specimens, in the type folder at BM, mounted on the same sheet as the Borrer specimen. The specimen cited by Harris is an example from “Algarum fasciculi" distributed by J. Cocks, and has no relevance whatsoever to the typification of Conferva corymbosa.

Origin of species name
Adjective (Latin), corymbose (Stearn 1973).
