Original publication and holotype designation: Sánchez, N., Vergés, A., Peteiro, C., Sutherland, J.E. & Brodie, J. (2014). Diversity of bladed Bangiales (Rhodophyta) in western Mediterranean: recognition of the genus Themis and description of T. iberica sp. nov., and Pyropia parva sp. nov. Journal of Phycology 50(5): 908-929.
Taxonomic status: currently regarded as a synonym of Neothemis.

Most recent taxonomic treatment adopted: Yoon, H.S., Nelson, W., Lindstrom, S.C., Boo, S.M., Pueschel, C., Qiu, H. & Bhattacharya, D. (2016). Rhodophyta. In: Handbook of the Protists. (Archibald, J.M, Simpson, A.G.B. & Samovits, C.H. Eds), pp. [1-45]. Cham, Switzerland: Springer International Publishing.
Illegitimate: priority for Themis R.A. Salisbury, 1866 (Asparagaceae). Authority cited as "N. Sánchez, A. Vergés, J. Sutherland et al., J. Brodie" presumably intended to include C. Peteiro. - (25 Nov 2014) - Wendy Guiry
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
