Synonym(s)
No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.

Taxonomic notes
According to Silva et al. (1996), the name Sargassum ilicifolium was misapplied to this species by Harvey (1857a: no. 103) and they recommend consulting J. Agardh (1889: 91). According to Silva et al. (1996), the taxa Sargassum duplicatum var. rotundatum and Sargassum duplicatum [var. rotundatum] forma dubium apparently lie within the circumspection of this species but have not yet been transferred or reduced to synonymy.

Silva et al. (1996: 665) and Womersley & Bailey (1970: 296) consider this to be current. - (4 Mar 2014) - Wendy Guiry

General environment
This is a marine species.
