Ceramium scopulorum C.Agardh
Type locality: Faeroes (Dixon & Price 1981: 136). Lectotype: LD, Herb. Alg. Agardh 18997 (Dixon & Price 1981: 136). Notes: Other material: C. Lyngbye, “ Hoyviig prope thorshavn Faeroe", 11 June 1817. PC, Lyngbye Faroe, undated, labelled ‘ Callithamnion roseum tenue" in Lyngbye’s hand. Comments: as discussed under Callithamnion roseum ß tenue (q.v.), Lyngbye and C. Agardh exchanged material and C. Agardh made use of material of the latter entity as the basis for Ceramium scopulorum. The original treatment of the latter quoted 'Callithamnion roseum tenue, Lyngb.' in its synonymy. The same material was later used by C. Agardh as the original material for Callithamnion scopulorum (q.v.), although the latter descripition makes no reference to the earlier Ceramium scopulorum.
Callithamnion scopulorum (C.Agardh) C.Agardh 1828
Maggs & Hommersand (1993: 105) note: "The dwarf scopulorum form, based on Callithamnion scopulorum from the Faroes, has some distinct morphological characters (Westbrook, 1927), including a lack of cortication, and has recently been shown to be a separate species non-interfertile with A. hookeri (Rueness & L'Hardy-Halos, pers. comm.)." - (13 Oct 2010) - M.D. Guiry
