No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.
"Validly published name (Art. 52.1) based on and homotypic with Fucus lomation Bertoloni (1818) (see above), which is cited in the protologue. Duby (1830: 943) cited Fucus palmetta S.G.Gmelin (1768), which is based on different type, as a synonym, but because names do not have priority outside the rank in which they are published (Art. 11.2), the 1768 specific epithet palmetta does not have priority over Duby's 1830 varietal epithet lomation."
