Nomenclatural notes:

In recent years the orders Zygnematales and Desmidiales are generally included in a class called the Zygnematophyceae (Round 1971: 243, as 'Zygnemophyceae'), an invalid name (no Latin description) often credited to van den Hoek, D.G. Mann & H.M. Jahn (1990: 461, also invalid as no Latin description was given) for which the Conjugatophyceae Engler (1892: 8, as 'Conjugatae') based on Conjugata Vaucher (1803), a nom. rejic. vs Spirogyra Link, nom. cons., is available (see Silva 1980: pp. 27-28).
