Type species
The type species (holotype) of the genus Dasya is Dasya pedicellata (C.Agardh) C.Agardh.

Status of name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.

Fucus baillouviana S.G.Gmelin

Type information
Type locality: Mediterranean Sea (Lipkin & Silva 2002: 32). Type: U.S.A.: "Torrey misit N. York": Torrey; LD 44131 (Pena-Martin, Gómez-Garreta & Crespo 2007: 254). Notes: Pl. 2 in Griselini, Observ. Scolopendre. (1750) was selected as lectotype (epitype) by Dixon & Irvine (1970), who illustrated the original plate as their fig. 2, which Pena-Martin, Gómez-Garreta & Crespo (2007: 254) considered corresponds to a species of Eupododon, perhaps E. planus, a species known from Venice, the most probable collecting locality of Griselini's material. Pena-Martin et al. (2007: 254) consider that applying Fucus baillouviana to a species of Sporochnus or Eupogodon would create unnecessary nomenclatural change, not only at the species level, but also at the generic. They formally propose to conserve Fucus baillouviana with a new conserved type that will maintain usage. They favour the specimen at Lund, LD 44131 from C. Agardh's herbarium, which has, handwritten by him, "Torrey misit [sic] N. York"
