Cormaci, Furnari & Alongi (2014: 113) consider this name invalid as Bliding did not indicate a type. However, INA accepts the name as valid saying that Bliding indicated a type in Lund. - (1 Jul 2015) - M.D. Guiry
Loughnane & al. (2008) synonymise this name with Ulva rigida, which requires further investigation. - (5 Jan 2021) - M.D. Guiry
Mediterranean records require confirmation (Gallardo et al. 1993).
This is a marine species.
