Dictyota linearis 1849
Dictyota linearis Trevisan 1849: 453
Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Dictyota dichotoma var. intricata (C.Agardh) Greville
Fucus linearis Forsskål
Origin of species name
Adjective (Latin), linear (Stearn 1973).
No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.
According to De Clerck (2003), this is a new name based on Fucus linearis Forsskål (1775: 190), which is not prioritable as it is a later homonym of F. linearis Hudson (1762; 467). Fucus linearis Forsskål was considered conspecific with D. fasciola by C. Agardh (1820: 136) based on an identification of a specimen by Hornemann, but an original Forsskål specimen in BM belonged to D. dichotoma (Hudson) Lamouroux var. intricata (C. Agardh) Greville. Whether this is the only extant specimen remains unclear.
