This specimen is part of a folio of pressed seaweeds collated by Margaret Gatty and her daughter, Horatia. Most of the contents of the folio were collected between 1850 to 1864. This specimen was collected in Jersey, probably in 1858. It isn't currently known whether the Gatty's ever travelled to Jersey. However, they did have a contact, Miss Cattlow, who is associated with Jersey. The specimen may have come from her.
