Stegenga & Kemperman (1983: 72) cite Acrochaetium virgatulum f. tenuissima Collins as basionym. However, in INA Chantransia virgatula f. tenuissima Collins 1900 is basionym of Acrochaetium virgatulum f. tenuissimum (Collins) Collins 1906 and Cromastrum tenuissimum is considered to be invalid because the basionym was not cited. - (30 Jul 2014) - Wendy Guiry
