Type Information
Type locality: "Golfo di Napoli, Italy" [Holotype from Torquay, England]; (Kützing 1849: 64-) Holotype: L; 940, 285 ... 306 (Womersley 1994: 61) Notes: Athanasiadis (1996:18) and Womersley (1994: 61) cite Torquay, Devon, England as the type locality of this species. Woelkerling (1972: 86) notes that although Kützing (1849: 640) cited the Bay of Naples as the type locality, Hamel (1927; 1928) has indicated that the type collection came from Torquay, England and is represented by specimen 454 in Hauck and Richter's "Phykotheca Universalis". The type specimen in the Kützing collections at L contains only plants collected by Naegeli in England (identical to those distributed in Hauck and Richter) and none from the Bay of Naples.
