The type species (holotype) of the genus Colpomenia is Colpomenia sinuosa (Mertens ex Roth) Derbès & Solier.
Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Colpomenia peregrina Sauvageau
Syntype localities: Various in the European Atlantic (Sauvageau 1927: 321). Lectotype: PC (Yoshida 1998: 305). Notes: Morhiban, France has been selected as the lectotype locality (Yoshida 1998: 305). Type from Brittany, France; in Herb, Sauvageau, PC (Womersley 1987: 298).
Origin of species name
Adjective A (Latin), foreign; wandering, travelling about; exotic strange (Brown 1956).
No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.
This taxon was proposed with alternative names (Colpomenia peregrina Sauvageau and Colpomenia sinuosa var. peregrina Sauvageau), with neither being preferrred (Pedroche et al. 2008:64). Because publication was effected prior to 1 January, 1953, both names are valid (ICBN Art. 34.2 "When, on or after 1 January 1953, two or more different names based on the same type are proposed simultaneously for the same taxon by the same author (so-called alternative names), none of them is validly published."; Silva, Basson & Moe, 1996: 627), and thus the correct nomenclatural citation, if the species status is preferred, is Colpomenia peregrina Sauvageau. Many authors, including Womersley (1987: 298), Vandermuelen (1998), and John et al. (2003) give the authorities for this species as (Sauvageau) Hamel, as if Hamel (1937) had raised the valadi varietal name of Sauvageau to a species; in fact, however, C. peregrina (Sauvageau) Hamel is an illegitmate later homonym of C. peregrina Sauvageau. - (5 Mar 2012) - M.D. Guiry
Found from half tide down into the sublittoral, in pools, growing on rock; also found growing epiphytically on several spp. of larger algae (Parsons 1982: 297). - (8 Jan 2013) - Wendy Guiry
mid intertidal; tide pool; epilithic, epiphytic on Neorhodomela (Augyte & Shaughnessy, 2014). - (3 Dec 2014) - Wendy Guiry
This is a marine species.
