Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Gayliella taylorii (E.Y.Dawson) T.O.Cho & S.M.Boo
Type locality: Cabeza Ballena, Baja California Sur, Mexico (Silva & al. 1996: 397). Type: E.Y. Dawson 3393; 9 November 1946; AHFH in UC 48797 (Dawson 1962: 66).
No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.
According to South & Skelton (Micronesica 33: 45-98, 2000) the type specimen of C. taylorii in BISH is very different from the type of C. flaccidum, and the syonymy proposed by Millar (1990) is thus unwarranted.
Caribbean Islands: Curaçao (Stegenga & Vroman 1987).
Pacific Islands/Pacific Ocean: Marshall Islands (Dawson 1957).
