Nomenclatural notes
Silva (1957: 143) conidered that this name represented the species currently known as Bonnemaisonia hamifera and introduced the name Bonnemaisonia intricata (C. Agardh) P.C. Silva. However, Dixon (1959: 342-344) demonstrated that Ceramium intricatum C.Agardh is an unidentifiable species of Spermothamnion as indicated by De Toni. - (12 Feb 2018) - M.D. Guiry
