XV: figs 1-9): see below (epitype) (Burrows 1991: 108). Notes: Syntypes from Brittany: Croisic (in Chaetomorpha) and Hérault: l'étang de Thau (on Cladophora and Chaetomorpha linum), l'étang de la Nouvelle (on the wall of Ceramium diaphanum); Burrows, in selecting a lectotype, does not narrow localities to one.
