Lithophyllum lichenoides var. agariciformis (Pallas) Cotton

Publication details
Lithophyllum lichenoides var. agariciformis (Pallas) Cotton 1912: 148

Type species
The type species (lectotype) of the genus Lithophyllum is Lithophyllum incrustans Philippi.

This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Mesophyllum lichenoides (J.Ellis) Me.Lemoine

Basionym
Millepora agariciformis Pallas

Type information
Type locality: "Locus: Mare Numidicum & Atlanticum" [Numidian Sea (Algeria) and Atlantic] (Pallas 1766: 264). Notes: Type: not designated (Woelkerling 1998c: 248, Athanasiadis 1999: 243). There is no syntype material in TRH Woelkering et al. (2005: 258). It crosses one's mind that if no type has been designated it is not possible to say that this name is synonymous with Mesophyllum lichenoides, as widely accepted, given the lack of reliability in identification of crustose corallines. Several pre-Linnaean names are cited by Pallas.

Origin of species name
Adjective (Latin), like a lichen.
