Basionym
Fucus bracteatus S.G.Gmelin

Type information
Type locality: "Mare indicum"* (Silva, Basson & Moe 1996: 903). Notes: *Silva et al. (1996: 903) note: Seba's (1758) illustrations, included in the protologue of Fucus bracteatus, were considered to constitute the type of F. bracteatus by Setchell & Gardner. Seba's material probably came from the Cape of Good Hope on the Atlantic Ocean. Gigartina bracteata is restricted to the cold waters of western Cape Province, South Africa. Rumphius (1750: 186) is also cited in the protologue. His alga (from Amboina on the Banda Sea, an outlier of the Pacific Ocean) was referred by G. Mertens (1863: 43) to Mastocarpus klenzeanus Kützing, a taxonomic synonym of Sarcodia montagneana (J. Hooker & Harvey J. Agardh. There is no indication that Gmelin had original collections at hand, so that the provenance "Mare indicum" shoud be considered erroneous. According to Parkinson (1981: 19), Gmelin's species is based primarily on the Rumphius plant and not on those of Seba (1750).
