Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Hypnea musciformis (Wulfen) J.V.Lamouroux
No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.
Hypnea rissoana was superfluous when published and hence illegitimate, because its protologue (J. Agardh, 1842: 150) included Sphaerococcus divaricatus C. Agardh (1827: 645) (=Hypnea musciformis) (Furnari et al., 1999).
This is a marine species.
Type locality: In salinis Tergestinis et ad Venetiam; in portu Villae Francae (Agardh 1842: 150).
