Abstract
    Post considered Dictyota adnata Zanardini to be a synonym of D. viellardii Kutz. However, examination of the type specimen of D. vieillardii proves it does not belong to the genus Dictyota but represents the Vaughaniella stage of a Padina species. D. vieillardii var, filiformis Kutz. is also shown to represent a Vaughaniella stage. The type specimen of D. adnata could not be traced and the designation of a neotype by Coppejans is confirmed.
