Published in: Drew, K.M. (1928). A revision of the genera Chantransia, Rhodocorton and Acrochaetium with descriptions of the marine species of Rhodochorton (Naeg.) gen. emend. on the Pacific coast of North America. University of California Publications in Botany 14: 139-224, Plates 37-48.
Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Colaconema corymbiferum (Thuret) Alongi, Cormaci & G.Furnari
Chantransia corymbifera Thuret
Type locality: "Sur Ceramium rubrum, à très basse mer. Automne. — RRR. — Querqueville (M. Thuret)." (Le Jolis 1863: 107). Notes: Dixon & Irvine (1777: 88): "Holotype: cannot be located; it would seem best to typify by the illustration given by Bornet & Thuret (1876), Pl. V [figs 1-11] (see Dixon 1977). France (Beelle-Ile-en-Mer)." This is essentially a lectotypification with an iconotype; however, the application of this is to be questioned as a different host (Helmithocladia vs Ceramium) is involved.
Origin of species name
