Rhodymenia mammillaris Montagne
Type locality: "HAB. In littore Martinicae insulae hauc speciem legit ci. Duperrey." [Martinique, French West Indies] (Montagne 1842: 252). Holotype: Duperrey; PC (Gurgel et al. 2004: 174).

According to Hardesty & Freshwater (2018), the currently named G. mammillaris "epitype" (US Alg. Coll.-204336) represents a unique species, Gracilaria gurgelii. However, the supposed epitype was not designated correctly (art. 7.11) and was ineffective.
