Hedophyllum subsessile ( ) 1901
Hedophyllum subsessile (Areschoug) Setchell 1901: 122, 123
Published in: Setchell, W.A. (1901). Notes on algae, I. Zoe 5: 121-129.
This is the type species (lectotype) of the genus Hedophyllum.
Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Saccharina subsessilis (Areschoug) Starko & S.C.Lindstrom
Type locality: Bering Island; Sitka (Index Nominum Algarum). Lectotype: UPS A-823620 (Starko et al. 2018: 162, fig. 4). Notes: Accordng to Setchell (1901: 122, 123), Areschoug does not give the type locality but inferred that it was either Bering Island or Sitka. Setchell's specimens came from the Island of Amaknak in Unalaska Bay. Lectotype designated by Starko & S.C. Lindstrom. They note that this specimen is one of two of this form collected by Kjellman on Bering Island between Aug. 14 and 19, 1879. They consider the other specimen in UPS (A823624) to be a syntype.
