Type species
The type species (holotype) of the genus Amansia is Amansia multifida J.V.Lamouroux.

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

Origin of species name
Adjective (Latin), clustered in a round mass.

Homotypic Synonym(s)
Melanamansia glomerata (C.Agardh) R.E.Norris 1995

Taxonomic notes
South & Skelton (2003) cite Amansia rhodantha (Harvey) J. Agardh 1841, Delesseria rhodantha Harvey 1834 and Amansia paloloensis South & Skelton 1999 as synonyms of Amansia glomerata C. Agardh 1824. However, N'Yeurt (2002) examined the Hawaiian lectotype specimen of Amansia glomerata C. Agardh, and found it to belong in the genus Melanamansia R.E. Norris 1988, which was found to differ from Amansia in morphological and biochemical characters.

General environment
This is a marine species.

Type information
Type locality: Ad insulas Sandvich [Hawaiian Islands] & Ravak maris australis. Spccimina legit Gaudichaud, mihique communicavit. (Agardh 1822: 194). Lectotype: LD herb. Alg. Agardh 42600 (Yoshida 1998: 1050). Notes: N’Yeurt (2002: 238) notes the herbarium number of this specimen as LD 42600/0772.
