Rhodymenia australis Sonder, 1845 nom. illeg.
Note: Rhodymenia australis is a superfluous and hence illegitimate name because Sonder originally applied it to a species that included (as var. contricta) Fucus constrictus Turner (1809-1811), which was later made the lectotype of Polypes J. Agardh in the Halymeniaceae. No synonym seems to be available. When transferring R. australis to Shaperococcus, Kuetzing (1849: 784) excluded F. constrictus as a synonym, so that the name S. australis is not superfluous. Nonetheless, it is illegitimate since it is a later homonym of S. australis Harvey (1844c: 445-446) (treated as a taxonomic synonym of Callophyllis rangiferina (R. Brown ex Turner) Womersley on page 206 of this catalogue). Acropeltis australis J. Agardh is also not a superfluous name and thus could server as a basionym if the species were moved to another genus (barring pre-emption by an earlier homonym in the new position). --- from Silva,P.C., Basson,P.W. & Moe,R.L.
