Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Laurencia filiformis (C.Agardh) Montagne
Chondria filiformis C.Agardh
Type locality: "Ad oras occidentales novae Hollandiae" [Western Australia] (Agardh 1822: 358). Holotype: PC? Notes: Agardh (1822: 358) clearly says "Vidi in collectione Musaei Parisiensis" so the holotype should be in PC and the "lectotype" (Womersley 2003: 470), which did not include the required "designated here", in LD (herb. alg. Agardh 36488) is probably a duplicate of the holotype.
