Ceramium versicolor C.Agardh
(Dixon & Price 1981: 137) Notes: Comments: the original treatment (C. Agardh, 1824: 140) cites three previously published binomials, one identification, and the manuscript source of the epithet. Despite widespread search we are unable to locate the type material of any of the previous binomials. Ceramium versicolor is a superfluous and illegitimate name, incapable of typification, which must be dismissed from consideration.
