Taxonomic notes
Millar & Prud'homme van Reine (2005: 541) concluded: "De Toni (1897: 481) related this species to the earlier described H. spinella (C. Agardh) Kützing (1847), but due to the many fine proliferous lateral branchlets along the main axes, which are clearly visible under the microscope, we would suggest that it is conspecific with the later described and widely reported Hypnea boergesenii Tanaka (1941)." - (13 Sep 2014) - M.D. Guiry
