Type information
Syntype localities: "Rocks on the Sea shore. On the Galway Coast; Dr. Scott. On the Antrim Coast; Mr. Mackay." [Ireland] (Dillwyn 1809: 73). Lectotype: BM (Woelkerling & Womersley 1994: 45). Notes: Type locality: Galway coast, Ireland; Holotype (cited as lectotype in Diaz-Tapia, 2014): NMW (fide Woelkerling, 1971: 31). "Dr Scott" was probably Robert Scott (ca 1757-1808), Professor of Botany at Trinity College Dublin from 1800 to 1808. Mr MacKay was James Townsend MacKay (ca 1775-1862), first curator of the [Trinity] College Botanic Gardens, then at Ballsbridge, Dublin, from 1808, and an Assistant at TCD from 1806. [Woelkerling 1971: 31 cites NMW but later publications cite BM (Dixon & Irvine, 1977: 97; Woelkerling & Womersley in Womersley, 1994: 45)].
