Nomenclatural notes
Suárez, Martínez-Daranas & Alfonso (2016: 57) write "Montagne (1842) describe un espécimen de Ceramium diaphanum var. serpens para Cuba; pero luego se refiere a la dificultad con el tipo, y no aparece figura alguna. De ahí que consideremos, por el momento, a esta variedad como un registro dudoso." - (28 Mar 2017) - M.D. Guiry
