Ceramium fruiticulosum 1981
Ceramium fruiticulosum Roth 1981: 135
Status of name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.
Type locality: not stated (Dixon & Price 1981: 135). (Dixon & Price 1981: 135). Notes: Comments: Roth(1800) compared his alga with Conferva marina nodosa of Dillenius (1741), the type of Conferva purpurascens Hudson, and in a later treatment (Roth,1806: 147) actually cited the latter in his treatment of Ceramium fruitculosum. Wulfen (1803) independently described Conferva fruiticulosa (q.v.), and it is probable that the two entities are based on fragments of the original gathering.
