Børgesen (1941: 66) cites this species as Sargassum heterophyllun (Turner) C. Agardh. Fucus heterophyllus Turner is illeditimate as it is a later homonym of Fucus heterophyllus C.L.Willdenow, 1794. Sargassum heterophyllum C.Agardh is thus treated as a new name.
This is a marine species.
Type locality: Cape of Good Hope, South Africa [lectotype locality of Fucus heterophyllus Truner, nom. illeg.]
