Type species
A type species for this genus does not appear to have been designated.

Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Callithamnion corymbosum (Smith) Lyngbye

Type information
Type locality: Brighthelmston, Sussex, England (Smith 1812: pl. 2352). Lectotype: Borrer; July 1811; BM-K (Dixon & Price 1981: 137). Notes: Syntype localities: Kingsbridge, coll. Gibbs; Bantry Bay, coll. Hutchins (Smith, 1911, pl.2352). Comments: Harris (1966) quoted the type locality as Kingsbridge and cited as holotype a specimen “in the British Museum of Natural History, no. 271". The original treatment is based on three collections, so that holotype status for any specimen is impossible. It would appear that this author was misled by the seven irrelevant specimens, in the type folder at BM, mounted on the same sheet as the Borrer specimen. The specimen cited by Harris is an example from “Algarum fasciculi" distributed by J. Cocks, and has no relevance whatsoever to the typification of Conferva corymbosa.

Origin of species name
Adjective (Latin), corymbose (Stearn 1973).
