Lectotypification: "Bursaria Muller, 1773, p. 62 (non Cavanilles, 1797). Type species: B. truncatella Müller, 1773; fixed by SD Loeblich, Jr. & Loeblich III, herein. [Based on the type, this name applies to a ciliate.]" (Loeblich & Loeblich 1966: 19). SD = subsequent designation. Bursaria O.F.Müller was proposed as "vermis", a kind of animal according his "Praefatio" (Müller 1773). According to the ICN (McNeill et al. 2012, Art. 54.1), consideration of homonymy does not extend to the names of taxa not treated as algae, fungi, or plants, except for later homonyms of the names of taxa once treated as algae, fungi, or plants are illegitimate, even when the taxa have been reassigned to a different group of organisms to which the Code does not apply (Weliton José da Silva, pers. comm. February 2016). - (6 Feb 2016) - M.D. Guiry
