Type locality: Mediterranean Sea (De Clerck 2003: 161). Lectotype: Kützing (1859: pl.20, fig. 1): (De Clerck 2003: 161). Notes: Kützing did not describe this variety but referred to his Species Algarum (1849: 555) which, however, contains no entry for D. aequalis var. minor. Nonetheless, the name is validated by the special provisions for non-vascular plants made by Art. 44.2. A type specimen could not be located in the Herb. Kützing or Herb. Sonder. Therefore, the illustration is chosen as a lectotype.
