Nomenclatural notes
"The name of this combination proposed by Bertoloni (1862: 89), based on Lomentaria reflexa Chauvin, is superfluous because of the author quoted Gigartina pygmaea J.V. Lamouroux as a synonym. However, the binomial isn't illegitimate but incorrect because of it has a basionym (Art. 52.4 of ICN, Turland et al., 2018)." (Cormaci, Furnari & Alongi 2021: 204). - (23 Aug 2021) - M.D. Guiry
