Abstract
No specimen of either of two Vahl (1802) taxa, Fucus cupressoides and F. ta xifolia, that could represent the holotypes of these names was indicated un ambiguously in the protologues. Almost 200 years later, due largely to the lack of critical labelling of original herbarium specimens, it has not been possible to distinguish conclusively any original material of the two taxa . As a result of detailed consideration of numerous specimens in many herba ria, appropriate material for neotypification has been identified: both spe cimens are at Copenhagen (C), Type No. A-826 (C 31688) for C. cupressoides and Type No. A-1086 (C 27833) for C. taxifolia.
