Ectocarpus crinitus is commonly accredited to Carmichael ex Harvey. But, since Harvey in Hooker (1833: 326) reported some of Carmichael'’s descriptions in quotation marks, it should be accredited to Carmichael (Furnari et al., 1999). Womersley (1987) cites the authority for this species as Carmichael ex Harvey.
This is a marine species.
Type locality: Appin, Scotland (Womersley 1987: 46). Type: BM (Womersley 1987: 46).
