Cocconema mexicanum Ehrenberg
Type locality: "Mexico" (Jahn & Kusber 2004: 581). Notes: Lectotype (designated by Jahn & Kusber 2004): Specimen on preparation No. 200701-a red in BHUPM (Jahn & Kusber 2004: fig. 11-12).who commented "The selected specimen fits the original drawing on drawing sheet No. 312 in BHUPM (Fig. 10). Krammer (2002) cited later published illustrations (Ehrenberg 1854) as “iconotypes”; this is not a formal typification (Greuter & al. 2000a: Art. 7.11 & 9.21; Greuter & al. 2000b: 75-76) but can be misunderstood as such."
This is a fossil species seemingly without extant populations.
