Nomenclatural notes
1977: 133, figs 1-4 (INA). - (22 Jun 2015) - Wendy Guiry

Athanasidis (2016: 415) considered this name invalid as "No (holo)type (or any gathering) indicated, apart from 'déc.1972 .. une localité'. Art. 40.3 does not apply as several illustrations were included. Hence an invalid name (Art. 40.1; 40.2)." However, Woelkerling (2018) provided convincing arguments that the name is valid. - (6 Feb 2017) - M.D. Guiry

Habitat notes
On eulittoral rocks and among other species in lower eulittoral multi-specific turfs (Tittley et al. 2009). - (25 Mar 2010) - Wendy Guiry
