Adjective (Latin), from France.

Ardré (1970: 174) cited Halos's thesis in her treatment of Aglothamnion gallicum, but it is not clear whether Halos's Third-cycle thesis from the Université de Paris was published in a manner that fits the ICN's current requirements for effective publication.
All records of Aglaothamnion brodiei from the Mediterranean Sea that are based on Feldmann-Mazoyer's concept of this taxon should be referred to Aglaothamnion gallicum (Furnari et al., 1999, following Maggs & Hommersand, 1994).
This is a marine species.
