Taxonomic notes
According to Perrone et al. (2006: 37), several specimens identified as A. muscoides (from various locations) belong to A. spicifera or A. ramulosa. These specimens include the neotype selected by de Jong et al. (1999). See note for Chondria muscoides. Other observed herbarium samples should be assigned to A. dendroides or A. nayadiformis (Perrone et al., 2006: 39).

Distributional notes
The presence of this species in the Mediterranean requires confirmation (Garreta et al., in prep.).

General environment
