Nomenclatural notes
This name is allegedly necessary because the original name (Fossula G.R. Hasle, E.E. Syvertsen, & C.H. von Quillfeldt) supposedly contravened Art. 20.2, which proscribes technical terms in use in morphology as generic names. "Fossula" = "little furrow", L. - (7 Jun 2020) - Salvador Valenzuela Miranda

Numbers of names and species: There is only one species or infraspecific name in the database at present, which has been flagged as accepted taxonomically on the basis of the listed literature under the species name. In some instances, opinions on taxonomic validity differ from author to author and users are encouraged to form their own opinion. AlgaeBase is a work in progress and should not be regarded as a definitive source only as a guide to the literature..

Names: ('C' indicates a name that is accepted taxonomically; 'S' a homotypic or heterotypic synonym; 'U' indicates a name of uncertain taxonomic status, but which has been subjected to some verification nomenclaturally; 'P' indicates a preliminary AlgaeBase entry that has not been subjected to any kind of verification.
