Conferva arbuscula R.Brown ex Dillwyn

Type Information
Syntype localities: "On submersed calcareous Rocks near Ballycastle, North of Ireland. Mr Brown. Bantry Bay, Miss Hutchins [Ballycastle, Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland; Bantry Bay, Co. Cork, Ireland]; (Dixon & Price 1981: 137) Lectotype (Ballycastle, Co. Antrim, N. Ireland): Robert Brown; undated; BM; (Dixon & Price 1981: 137) Notes: Typification was discussed in detail by Dixon (1960, 1964). The choice of lectoype was made on the basis of the statement by Dillwyn (1809: 35) that Dawson Turner provided the original description of this entity; but in the text to pl. 85, he seems to credit Robert Brown. The position became confused as a consequence of the latter figure (Dillwyn, 1809, pl. 6G) based on a specimen of Dasya, so that the epithet arbuscula came to be applied in both Callithamnion and Dasya. Despite previous resolution of this issue (Dixon, 1960, 1964), Harris (1966) stated that he had been unable to locate original material.
