Status of name

Gymnogongrus humilis Lindauer
Type locality: Ngaere Bay, Northland, New Zealand (Lewis & Womersley 1994: 267). Lectotype: Lindauer; 25 February 1940; at low water. AKU at AK herb. Lindauer Notes: Gymnogongrus humilis Lindauer was distributed in Fascicle 6 in Algae Nova-Zelandicae Exsiccatae in December 1942 then effectively published by distribution of printed labels May 1947. Chapman (1979: 362) published the same description and designated a type (= lectotype) as No. 1774 (= AKU 100252). J.A.Lewis & Womersley in Womersley (1994: 267) have placed G. humbles in Ahnfeltiopsis humbles (Lindauer) J.A.Lewis & Womersley, and specify "lectotype in Herb. Lindauer, CHR" although the Herb. Lindauer is in AKU at AK (Wendy Nelson, e-mail, December 2011). The specimens distributed as Alg. Nova-Zel. Exsicc. No. 145 are effectively isolectotypes.
