Family Bolbocoleonaceae

Bolbocoleonaceae C.J.O'Kelly & B.Rinkel in Brodie, Maggs & D.M.John, 2007: 61.

Nomenclatural notes:

INA notes: "This family name was spelled BOLBOCOLEACEAE in INA for a time. Silva, with advice from Dan Nicolson, assumed that "coleon" was a Greek neuter noun, the genitive of which was not coleonis. In fact, Pringsheim formed Bolbocoleon arbitrarily from the combination of Bolbochaete and Coleochaete."
