Type information
Type locality: "Tateyama, prov, of Boshu ; by trawling in the water 2.3 fathoms deep (F. Sugiyama)" (Yendo 1903: 99). Notes: "This plant has been once sent to me from late Mr. F. Sugiyama for determination, who collected it on the shore at Tateyama in the province of Boshl. The specimen was fiagelliform, entirely destitute of ramulae; and has been left in doubt thinking it probably an aberrant form of some species. Last summer, again, he tried another collection there and sent me a specimen. It was identically similar to the former but furnished with plnilate ramules on the branches. The plant undoubtedly stands near by Caul. sedoides, from which, however, is easily separable by the stipitated cylindrical ramules and the mode of ramuliferation."
