Published in: Agardh, C.A. (1820 '1821'). Species algarum rite cognitae, cum synonymis, differentiis specificis et descriptionibus succinctis. Volumen primum. Pars prima. pp. [i-iv], -168. Lundae [Lund]: ex officina Berlingiana.
Publication date: probably Jan-April 1820
Status of name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.
Type locality: "in mari Japonico" (probably around Nagasaki port) (Yoshida et al. 2004: 94). Lectotype: Tilesius; May 1804; Herb. Agardh, LD 2838 (Yoshida et al. 2004: 94).
Subgenus Sargassum Section Binderianae
Origin of species name
Participle B (Latin), spreading, outspread, diverging from the axis at almost 90 degrees (Stearn 1973).
Fucus patens C.Agardh 1815
Yoshida et al. (2004) note that, using ITS-2nrDNA analysis, Stiger et al. (2000, 2003) showed that S. patens is positioned in a clade with S. crassifolium and S. binderi of subgenus Sargassum. They conclude that subgenus Schizophycus should be merged with subgenus Sargassum and that in spite of a supposed similarity, subgenus Schizophycus is in a position remote from subgenus Phyllotrichia.
Included in section Binderianae by Matteo et al. 2010 (formerly in section Acanthocarpicae). - (11 Aug 2010) - Wendy Guiry
