Adey et McKibbin f. compressum (M'Calla ex Harvey) Benhissoune, Boudouresque, Perret-Boudouresque et Verlaque comb. nov., Phymatolithon calcareum (Pallas) W. H. Adey et McKibbin f. squarrulosum (Foslie) Benhissoune, Boudouresque, Perret-Boudouresque et Verlaque comb. nov., Plocamium cartilagineum (Linnaeus) P. S. Dixon var. uncinatum (C.
