Taxonomic notes
Shevlin (in Schneider & Searles, 1991: 95) considers that this entity represents a growth form of B. plumosa (Hudson) C. Agardh. Taylor (1945) cites his record as Bryopsis hypnoides Lamouroux, prox. The conspecificty between Bryopsis hypnoides and B. monoica Funk continues to be a matter of dispute (see Cormaci, Furnari & Alongi 2014: 211).
