Published in: Selivanova, O.N., Zhigadlova, G.G. & Hansen, G.I. (2007). Revision of the systematics of algae in the order Laminariales (Phaeophyta) from the Far-Eastern Seas of Russia on the basis of molecular-phylogenetic data. Russian Journal of Marine Biology 33: 278-289.

This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Laminaria digitata (Hudson) J.V.Lamouroux
No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.
Invalid: "failure to cite [the correct] basionym (Fucus bifurcatus Gunnerus)" [INA]. The citation reads: "Basionym: Laminaria bongardiana f. bifurcata Postels et Ruprecht, Illustr. Alg., 1840: 10, pl. XIV." However, Laminaria bongardiana ß bifurcata Postels et Ruprecht" [Postels & Ruprecht used on "ß"] included in synonymy Fucus bifurcatus Gunnerus, which should be regarded as the intended basionym. As a new name, a Latin description and the designation of a type would be necessary. In accordance with ICN Art. 37.4 ("If in one whole publication (Art. 37.5), prior to 1 January 1890, only one infraspecific rank is admitted, it is considered to be that of variety unless this would be contrary to the author%u2019s statements in the same publication."), Laminaria bongardiana ß bifurcata Postels et Ruprecht should be regarded as a variety and not a forma (Wynne 2016). - (28 Jun 2016) - M.D. Guiry
