Cremades (in Cremades & Perez-Cirera, 1990: 492) correctly proposed the name Scytosiphon simplicissiumus (Clemente) Cremades. But, in consideration of the widespread and consistent use of Scytosiphon lomentaria for this species, Pedersen & Kristiansen (1994: 645) proposed the rejection of Ulva simplicissima Clemente, the basionym of Scytosiphon simplicissiumus. This proposal was approved at the XVI International Botanical Congress (St. Louis, Missouri, 26-30 July 1999) (Barrie & Greuter, 1999), so Scytosiphon lomentaria is the correct name of this species.
This is a marine species.
