The name Dasya pilosa (Weber-van Bosse) A. Millar has become accepted in the current literature and is regarded as having the two heterotypic taxonomic synonyms D. adhaerens Yamada and Dasyopsis anastomosans Weber-van Bosse. The historical background of this synonomy is presented, including current ideas about the relationship between Dasya and Eupogodon. Because the oldest name available is Dasyopsis anastomosans Weber-van Bosse (1921), Dasya anastomosans comb. nov. is proposed as the correct name for this widely distributed tropical red algal species.
