This is a marine species.
Type locality: "in Dictyota. Tergeste mare adriaticum, mare mediterraneum." [Trieste, Italy] (Reinsch 1875: 48). Notes: Attanasiadis (1996: 69) notes that a type has not been designated.
Athanasiadis (1996: 69) proposes the combination Pterothamnion abietinum (Reinsch) Athanasiadis but included both the basionym and the proposed new combination in synonymy with Pterothamnion crispum. This is contrary to Art. 34.1 of the ICBN and the combination is thus invalid.
Source of synonymy
Athanasiadis, A. (1996). Morphology and classification of the Ceramioideae (Rhodophyta) based on phylogenetic principles. Opera Botanica 127: 1-221.
