Type species
The type species (lectotype) of the genus Achnanthes is Achnanthes adnata Bory.

Origin of species name
Adjective (Latin), short-footed.

Achnantella brevipes (Agardh) Gaillon 1833

Nomenclatural notes
New name. Illegitimate: unwarranted change of epithet for Achnanthes adnata Bory 1822 (INA). - (16 Jul 2015) - Wendy Guiry

Toyoda et al. (2005) advocate that the name Achnanthes brevipes be conserved against Echinella stiptata Lyngbe. "We propose that the name Acnanthes Bory be conserved with Echinella stipitata Lyngbe as its type, and designate the Lyngbye's material (A-2348) as the lectotype. However, because changing the specific epithet to either stipitata or adnata would introduce confusion into the literature,...we also propose that the name Achnanthes brevipes be conserved. A formal proposal will be submitted to Taxon" (Toyoda et al., 2005: 383). However, Cox (2006: 68) states that A. brevipes is a synonym of A. adnata. - (29 Jul 2016) - Wendy Guiry
