Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Chaetomorpha vieillardii (Kützing) M.J.Wynne
Type locality: New Caledonia (Millar & Prud'homme van Reine 2005: 538). Holotype: Vieillard; L 939, 271-79 (barcode L 0194027) (Millar & Prud'homme van Reine 2005: 538). Notes: Holotype: Vieillard # 2010. The material is not well preserved and thus difficult to identify with certainty, according to Millar & Prud'homme van Reine (2005). Wynne (2011) identified the type as a species of Chaetomorpha. Isotypes: MICH and CN (Wynne 2011: 112).
