Nomenclatural notes
Hommersand et al. (2009: 528) point out that this name cannot be consider a combination of Gracilaria obtusangula J.D.Hooker & Harvey since Kützing followed Hooker & Harvey (1847) in merging Gracilaria obtusangula and G. nigrescens (C. Agardh) J.D.Hooker & Harvey, 1847. - (20 Jan 2010) - M.D. Guiry

Hommersand et al. (2009: 528) mention unpublished evidence fromrbcL sequencing that this is not a Cystoclonium but probably represents a new genus. - (20 Jan 2010) - M.D. Guiry
