Nomenclatural notes
Illegitimate: note Miuraea Hara (1948), T: Miuraea degenerans (Sydow & P.Sydow) Hara (Fungi: Mycosphaerellaceae). - (5 Jun 2018) - M.D. Guiry

Taxonomic notes
According to Yoon et al. (2016: [31]) 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
