Type information
Type locality: "Ce petit Ceramium croît à Sette sur les rochers; je l'ai ramassé dan le mois de juin." [Sète, France] (Athanasiadis 1996: 69). Neotype: G IG110783 (Maggs & Hommersand 1993: 23). Notes: A specimen said to have been discovered by Athanasiadis (pers. comm. in Maggs & Hommersand, 1993) is said by the authors to have priority over the neotype from Banyuls-sur-mer, France, designated by Athanasiadis (1985, fig. 12.). However, Athanasiadis (1996: 69) retains the neotype.
