Note: Grunow (1867: 45) merged three species of Ectocarpus originally described by Kützing (E. approximatus, E. ceratoides, and E. flagelliformis), but failed to adopt the earliest available name for the combined species. Ectocarpus approximatus is a substitute name for E. fasciculatus Kützing, a later homonym of E. fasciculatus Harvey (1841) (see Note to E. parvulus).
