Fucus crinalis Hare ex Turner
Lectotype locality: Ilfracombe, Devonshire, England (Dixon & Irvine 1977: 140). Lectotype (provisional): R. Hare; BM ex K (Dixon & Irvine 1977: 140). Notes: Dawson (1953: 64) notes holotype is not designated but may be considered to be a specimen without locality data from the Turner Herbarium, now in Kew, England. It is annotated "This is Turner's idea of G. crinale and may be taken as the type. f. W.A.S." An isotype fragment of this specimen is on sheet 55234 in HAHF. Silva et al. (1996: 137) note that Fucus crinalis was lectotypified by Dawson (1953: 64), who, however cited "Rocks at Kilmouth, Cornwall, England" as the provenance of the lectotype specimen and that the error was corrected by Dixon & L. Irvine (1977a: 140).
