Taxonomic notes
Nitschke et al. (2010) consider Rhodella maculata and R. violacea to be conspecific. - (18 Apr 2011) - Wendy Guiry

Distributional notes
Reported in error by Guiry (1997) from Britain; the record intended was that from Helgoland (Kornmann, 1965). Record in Parke & Dixon (1976) refers to planktonic reports from southern North Sea and the species is excluded from the seaweed flora of the British Isles by Brodie & Irvine (2003: 39).

General environment
This is a marine species.
