Nomenclatural notes
John et al. (2004) cite the authority for this species as (Børgesen) Kuck. ex. Kornmann.

Index Nominum Algarum (May 2012) notes that the "genus and all species attributed to Kuckuck"should be attributed to Kornmann since "Kuckuck in mscr. had these three species as Sectio X of Ectocarpus". The work in question is Kuckuck (1955), published by Peter Kornmann from a Paul Kuckuck (1866-1918) manuscript. - (1 May 2012) - M.D. Guiry
