Status of name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.
No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.
Invalid: This binomial has appeared in Lobban & Tsuda (2003: 64) and in Tsuda (2003: 27) with purported authorship of "(C. Agardh) Kylin". But there is no evidence that Kylin ever validated that binomial. The epithet "corallis" is an error traceable to Okamura (1916, Bot Mag., Tokyo 30: 9), who erroneously listed the name "Gymnosorus corralis (Ag.) J. Ag.", with the basionym Zonaria collaris Ag. That misspelled epithet has been picked up by several authors. Zonaria collaris C. Agardh (1820) is a taxonomic synonym of Lobophora variegata (J.V. Lamouroux) Womersley ex E.C. Oliveira (M. Wynne, 17 Feb. 2012). - (17 Feb 2012) - M.D. Guiry
