Nomenclatural notes
Corrected from confervicolum to confervicola: "Art. 23.5. The specific epithet, when adjectival in form and not used as a noun, agrees grammatically with the generic name; when it is a noun in apposition or a genitive noun, it retains its own gender and termination irrespective of the gender of the generic name. Epithets not conforming to this rule are to be corrected (see Art. 32.2). In particular, the usage of the word element -cola as an adjective is a correctable error." - (2 Feb 2017) - M.D. Guiry
