Type Species
This is the type species (holotype) of the genus Dasyphloea.

Status of Name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.

Type Information
Type locality: "Akaro, Novae-Zeclandiae; d'Urville" [likely error for Hobart, Tasmania]; (Montagne 1842: 8) Holotype: PC; Herb. Montagne (Mitchell 1966: pl. 1 (25): fig. 1) Notes: "... probably from Tasmania (rather than Akaroa, N.Z. - see Mitchell 1966, p. 210); in Herb. Montagne, PC." (Womersley 1994: 223). " Mitchell (1966: 201) says "It seems possible that the original locality (Akaroa, New Zealand) is incorrect, since d’Urville’s expedition called at Hobart, Tasmanla, immediately prior to visiting New Zealand. Several other locality records of algae collected by this expedition are open to doubt (see Womersley 1956, p. 356)."

Origin of Species Name
Adjective (Latin), distinguished.

This is a marine species.

Sublittoral, 2-17 m deep (Womersley 1994: 223).
