Yoshida et al. (2004) note that, using ITS-2 nrDNA analysis, Stiger et al. (2000, 2003) showed that S. patens is positioned in a clade with S. crassifolium and S. binderi of subgenus Sargassum. The addition of S. kushimotense confirms this conclusion. They conclude that subgenus Schizophycus should be merged with subgenus Sargassum.
This is a marine species.
