From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution The occurrence of Asparagopsis taxiformis is questionalble in the Mediterranean according to the latests review by Cormaci et al. (2004). [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorRemark Dasya delilei and Asparagopsis delilei are superfluous names since the epithet taxiformis should
have been retained. The conspecificity of Asparagopsis sanfordiana and A. Taxiformis was proposed by J. Feldmann & G. Feldmann (1943: 81--82). Falkenbergia hillebrandii was shown by Chihara (1961) to be the tetrasporangial stage. In the confusing treatment by Desikachary, V. Krishnamurthy, & M.Balakrishnan (1990: 189--190), Polysiphonia rufolanosa, the sporophyte of Asparagopsis armata, is cited as a synonym of F. Hillebrandii, but A. Armata is not cited as a synonym of A. taxiformis and moreover is separately illustrated (figs. 39, 40). [details]
