Nomenclatural notes
In Index Nominum Algarum the following is cited: Audouinella secundata (Lyngbye) Woelkerling, nom. prov.; 'If his plants are the same as New England plants (which, no doubt, will prove to be the case), Colaconema secundata ... will then be transferred to the genus Audouinella as A. secundata ... (Rhodora 75: 575 adnot, 1973). Such a provisional name is invalid. - (19 May 2009) - Wendy Guiry
