Publication details
Neogoniolithon mamillosum (Hauck) Setchell & L.R.Mason 1943: 91, nom. illeg.

Published in: Setchell, W.A. & Mason, L.R. (1943). Goniolithon and Neogoniolithon: two genera of crustaceous coralline algae. Proceedings of the National Academy of Science of the United States of America 29: 87-92.

Type species
The type species (holotype) of the genus Neogoniolithon is Neogoniolithon fosliei (Heydrich) Setchell & L.R.Mason.

Basionym
Lithothamnion mamillosum Hauck

Nomenclatural notes
Illegitimate: Woelkering et al. (2005: 87) note: "The name Lithothamnion mamillosum Hauck (1883a) is based on a non-fossil type and thus has priority over [the fossil species] L. mamillosum Gümbel (1871: 41) which is based on a fossil type (see ICBN Art. 11.7, Note 4)].". However, G. Furnari (e-mail, 3 March 2017) writes: "In 2005, Woelkerling et al., correctly referred to the Saint Louis Code of 2000 in which Art. 11.7 Note 4 gave reason to that interpretation. But, the Vienna Code of 2006 Art. 11.8 Note 4 and relative examples, gave a different rule as concerns homonymy. Such an interpretation was confirmed in ICN (Melbourne Code) of 2012 Art. 11.8 Note 5 and relative examples 35-37. Therefore, Lithothamnion mamillosum Hauck is illegitimate being a later homonym of L. mamillosum Gümbel and L. hauckii Rothpletz is a legitimate new name. Consequently, all combination based on L. mamillosum Hauck are illegitimate, while those based on L. hauckii Rothpletz, are legitimate. Of course, L. hauckii Foslie is illegitimate being a later homonym of L. hauckii Rothpletz." - (3 Mar 2017) - M.D. Guiry

Taxonomic notes
According to Woelkerling et al. (1998: 137) both status and position of this taxon are uncertain. John et al. (2004) cite Goniolithon mamillosum f. microcarpa (Hauck) Foslie as a synonym of this species.

Distributional notes
John et al. (2004) note that this species was mistakenly reported from Annobon, Bioko and Cameroun under Neogoniolithon mamillosum in John et al. (1994).

General environment
This is a marine species.
