This specimen is part of a folio of pressed seaweeds collated by Margaret Gatty and her daughter, Horatia. The contents of the folio were collected between 1850 to 1864, with a couple of later additions. This specimen was probably collected peronally by Margaret or Horatia, during a trip to the Scilly Isles in the Summer of 1862. The Gatty's appear to have only travelled to the Scillys once, probably staying on the island of St Mary's.
