Most recent taxonomic treatment adopted: Hustedt, F. (1930). Bacillariophyta (Diatomeae) Zweite Auflage. In: Die Süsswasser-Flora Mitteleuropas. Heft 10. (Pascher, A. Eds), pp. [i]-vii, -466. Jena: Verlag von Gustav Fischer.
CAS: "5 species, no type seems to have been designated, [Round, Crawford & Mann (1990: 492, 690] gives the first of them G. vulgaris as the type." This is not in accordance with the ICBN and cannot count as a lectotype selection as "here designated" is not used and this is automatic selection. Also, according to INA, no type was designated; 5 spp. are listed including G. vulgaris (Kützing) O. Müller - LT fide Round et al., 1990: 690. G. vulgaris is also cited as the type species by Shinohara et al. (2014: 10). - (21 Oct 2011) - M.D. Guiry
