Bory."; (Agardh 1823: 412) Notes: Womersley (1987: 300) gives the following data: Lectotype from Belle Isle [Belle-île, Brittany], France (but see Hamel 1937: 202); in Herb. Bornet, PC; Herb.

Hamel (1937:202) recorded that Bornet thought that the provenance might have been inaccurately recorded because the shells on which the specimens grew do not occur there naturally."
