Taxonomic notes
Gabrielson et al. (2018), based on DNA sequencing of type material, showed that Lithophyllum dentatum f. sandvicensis basionym of Porolithon sandvicense is not the same species as P. onkodes. Earlier Maneveldt & Keats (2014), based on morpho-anatomy of L. dentatum f. sandvicensis type material, had placed P. sandvicense in synonymy under P. onkodes. - (1 Mar 2019) - Paul Gabrielson
