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

Basionym
Gracilariopsis vermiculophylla Ohmi

Type information
Type locality: Gomejima, Akkeshi Bay (Lake Akkeshi), Kushiro Prov., Japan (Terada & Yamamoto 2002: 216). Holotype: Ohmi 200; ix. 1955; HAK (Terada & Yamamoto 2002: 216). Notes: Holotype: Ohmi 200, spermatangial. Isotype: Ohmi 201, cystocarpic, currently housed in herbarium at Faculty of Fisheries, Hokkaido University.

Taxonomic notes
Terada & Yamamota (2002) report that Gracilaria confervoides and G. verrucosa of Japanese authors together with Gracilariopsis rhodotricha sensu Ohmi (non Dawson) actually represent this species.

Distributional notes
Thomsen et al. (2006: 139) note that the cylindrical form of Gracilaria that dominates Hog Island Bay, Virginia, is G. vermiculophylla (Ohmi) Papenfuss, an alien macroalga from the West Pacific. This form was referred to previously as G. verrrucosa (Hudson) Papenfuss (now a rejected name). Flat specimens from this area, formerly referred to as G. foliifera (Førsskal) Börgesen, are now referred to as G. tikvahiae McLachlan. Accidentally introduced into the Mediterranean (Verlaque et al. 2015: 167) with Manila clams (Tapes philippinarum) imported for farming from the Pacific. Restricted currently (2015) to the N Adriatic Sea in the Mediterranean Sea; first found in 2008. It has now been reported to be introduced into a number of locations in NE Atlantic, including Britain and Ireland and Norway, and in Virginia, USA. - (22 Jun 2006) - Wendy Guiry
