Nomenclatural notes:

As circumscribed in the ING, this family includes Chondrosiphon, the type of Chondrosiphonaceae Kützing 1843; Lomentaria, the type of Lomentariaceae J. Agardh 1876; and Gastroclonium Kützing 1843 (nom. cons.), the type of Gastrocloniaceae Ardissone 1883. If Lomentaria is placed in a family separate from the Champiaceae (as by Lee, 1978), the correct family name is Chondrosiphonaceae, since Chondrosiphon Kützing 1843 is a taxonomic synonym of Lomentaria Lyngbye 1819. Because Lomentariaceae has been widely used, either including or excluding Champia, it seems justified to propose it for conservation against Chondrosiphonaceae, a name that was used only by Kützing.
