Nomenclatural notes
Dinophysis uracanthoides F. Gomez, P. Lopez-Garcia & D. Moreira, new name (INA). According to INA, Dinophysis uracanthoides (Jorg.) F. Gomez, P. Lopez-Garcia & D. Moreira [ basionym: Dinophysis hastata f. uracanthides, Gomez et al., 2011: 404] is invalid, being the intended combination of Dinophysis hastata var. uracanthides Jorgesen 1923 (inval. and lacking requirements for validity as new species). INA notes that the latter name was not accepted by the author; cited as f. uracanthides in the legend. - (23 Aug 2011) - Wendy Guiry
