Nomenclatural notes
Cormaci, Furnari & Alongi (2014: 201) pointed out that 'Funk (1927: 332), reporting the 10.I.1880 manuscript description by Berthold of a "Bryopsis-Form", published his B. monoica. Because Berthold gave no epithet to his species, B. monoica should be attributed to Funk and [not] to Berthold ex Funk, as reported by Guiry & Guiry (2014) nor to Berthold in Funk as reported by Wynne (2005: 253) and in INA.' - (18 Nov 2014) - M.D. Guiry
