Published in: Gray, S.F. (1821).

Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Gaillona hookeri (Dillwyn) Athanasiadis
Conferva hookeri Dillwyn
Lectotype locality: Cawsie, Moray, Scotland (Dixon & Price 1981: 138). Lectotype: undated; TCD (Dixon & Price 1981: 138). Notes: [Syn] Dixon & Price (1981: 138) "Type localities: Cawsie [Moray, Scotland], coll. Hooker and Borrer; Holyhead, coll. Davies; Bantry Bay, coll. Hutchins (Dillwyn, 1809 : pi. 106). Lectotype: TCD, Hooker and Borrer, Cawsie, undated, labelled 'Br. Flora C. Hookeri Cawsie Hook. Borrer', in Harvey's hand. Other material: BM(K), three specimens. Comments: Harris (1966) cited a K specimen, supposedly from Holyhead, Anglesey. None of the K material mentioned above is so annotated and the specimen at TCD is the legitimate choice of lectotype."
