According to Yoon et al. (2016: ) and most previous authors, "The class Bangiophyceae includes one order Bangiales, one family Bangiaceae, and 12 currently recognized genera with ca. 130 species." By contrast, Athansiadis (2016: 38) refers all these genera, except Bangia which remains in the Bangiaceae, Bangiales, to the Porphyraceae, which he refers to the Porphyrales. - (6 Feb 2017) - M.D. Guiry
