"Nizamuddin%u2019s (1981) taxonomic conclusions are questionable due to the possible confusion between sori and hair tufts, at least for specimens by Nizamuddin ascribed to D. membranacea and to D. tripolitana. Such an opinion was expressed by both Silva et al. (1996: 924-927) and Phillips (2000), who stated that Nizamuddin%u2019s (1981) taxonomic conclusions should be confirmed." (Cormaci et al. 2012: 46).
This is a marine species.
