Nomenclatural notes
Bast (2015: 54) introduced this name as follows: "Monostroma kuroshiensis (Yendo) Bast, nom. nov. (Fig. 7). Basionym: Monostroma latissimum (Kutzing) Wittrock sensu Yendo (1917). Homotypic synonym: Monostroma nitidum Wittrock sensu Nagura (Nagura 1921, Yoshida 1998)." The name cannot be regarded as being based on either of the two names cited but can be treated as a new species ("nom. nov.") attributed solely to Bast. Additionally, the genus name Monostroma is neuter and the adjectival epithet is here corrected to neuter. - (30 Sep 2015) - M.D. Guiry
