Status of name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.
Laurencia thuyoides Kützing
Type locality: New Caledonia (Boisset, Furnari, Cormaci & Serio 2000: 393). Holotype (tetrasporangial): Kützing's Herbarium held at the Rijksherbarium L 9995-1 (Boisset, Furnari, Cormaci & Serio 2000: 393). Notes: According to Millar & Prud'homme van Reine (2005: 542), the only sheet located was L 941,149-178 (ex herb. Lenormand; barcode L 0194036). No locality is given, nor does it have any Kützing annotations, only those of Lenormand stating 'Laurencia thuyoides Kütz'. It may well be from Vieillard's collections, but there is no real certainty
Origin of species name
Adjective (Latin), resembling the genus Thuja (Neal 1993).
Chondria obtusa var. paniculata C.Agardh 1822
Laurencia obtusa var. paniculata (C.Agardh) Zanardini 1847
Laurencia paniculata (C.Agardh) J.Agardh 1852
Athanasiadis (2016: 1213) presents a case to change the orthography to "thyoides"; however, Art. 60.3 of the Melbourne Code prescribes "The liberty of correcting a name is to be used with reserve, especially if the change affects the first syllable and, above all, the first letter of the name.". The orthography "thyoides" is of long standing and should be retained. - (28 Feb 2017) - M.D. Guiry
