Description

The species can be confused with Durvillaea amatheiae, which has an overlapping geographic distribution.[1][2] D. potatorum has a shorter, wider stipe with more limited lateral blade development, whereas D. amatheiae has a shorter, narrow stipe and typically prolific lateral blade development.[1][2]
