Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Trentepohlia aurea (Linnaeus) C.Martius

Basionym
Byssus aurea Linnaeus

Type information
Type locality: Wales: Caenarvon; Italy (Index Nominum Algarum). Type: Dillenius (1742: pl. 1: fig. 16): OXF (Index Nominum Algarum Notes: LT fide L.M. Irvine in M.A. Spencer et al., 2009: 240 (INA). There is no evidence that this species was seen live by Linnaeus. Byssus aurea is based on “Byssus capillacea pulverulenta..” of Gleditsch (Meth. Fung., p. 18, 1753). The topotype is apparently lost, but there is every reason to suppose that the name is correctly applied to Trentepohlia aurea (Linnaeus) Martius as currently understood (Ross & Irvine, 1967).

Origin of species name
