Silva in Silva, Basson & More (1996: 930-931) concluded that "Sargassum acinaria must be attributed to C. Agardh and considered an illegitimate new name for F. acinarius Linnaeus. J. Agardh (1889: 114), without explanation, cited the name as S. acinaria (Turner) J. Agardh." - (14 Feb 2018) - M.D. Guiry
