While Agardh (1823: 412) attributed the unpublihsed name Fucus clathratus to "Bory msct" he chose to coin a new name and thus the name Encoelium clathratum should be attributed solely to C.Agardh. - (26 Aug 2015) - M.D. Guiry
This is a marine species.
Type locality: "In mari Australi, ut [?] ad Ravak, in sinu 'Baie de Chien Marin', sec. Gaudichaud. — In mari Atlantico ad insulam, 'Beii isle' prope litus Armoricae, sec. Bory." (Agardh 1823: 412). Notes: Womersley (1987: 300) gives the following data: Lectotype from Belle Isle [Belle-île, Brittany], France (but see Hamel 1937: 202); in Herb. Bornet, PC; Herb. Agardh, LD? INA commented: "Womersley (1987: 300) lectotypified the name with a specimen from Belle-île, Brittany, France. Hamel (1937:202) recorded that Bornet thought that the provenance might have been inaccurately recorded because the shells on which the specimens grew do not occur there naturally."
