The type species (lectotype) of the genus Gracilaria is Gracilaria compressa (C.Agardh) Greville.

Status of name

Basionym
Chondria filiformis C.Agardh

Type information
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.

Origin of species name
Adjective (Latin), thread-like (Stearn 1973).
