Silva et al. (1996: 368) note that in Harvey's amplified description of Halymenia kallymenioides in 1859, he included a mixture of two species, as noted by J. Agardh (1876), who described a second species Chrysymenia cliftonii. H. cliftonii Harvey 1859 is a substitute name for H. kallymenioides (Cryptonemia kallymenioides (Harvey) Kraft. - (11 Jun 2009) - Wendy Guiry
Scott et al. (1982: 247) cite Chrysymenia cliftoni (Harvey) J. Agardh as a synonym of Cryptomenia kallymenioides (Harvey) Kraft. - (11 Jun 2009) - Wendy Guiry
