Taxonomic notes
Verlaque et al. (2005: 485) note that Wilkes et al. (2005, published in February 2005) proposed the new combination G. luxurians before O. De Clerc & B. Gavio in O. De Clerck, B. Gavio, S. Fredericq, I. Barbara & E. Coppejans (2005, published in April 2005). However, on p. 494 (note added in proof) they note that according to Art. 11.2 of th ICBN (Greuter et al. 2000), priority only applies in the same rank; G. luxurians was described as a variety of G. filicina and hence cannot take priority over G. subpectinata. [see discussion on pages 491, 492] - (8 Aug 2006) - Wendy Guiry

Distributional notes
This entity is likely to have been introduced into harbour areas in Australia, Britain (south coast), Brittany, Spain, and Mediterranean France (see distributional data under Grateloupia filicina var. luxurians), probably from Japan. - (19 Aug 2006) - Wendy Guiry

General environment
This is a marine species.
