Parahistioneis Kofoid & Skogsberg, 1928
Holotype species: Parahistioneis diomedeae (Kofoid & J.R.Michener) Kofoid & Skogsberg
Currently accepted name for the type species: Histioneis diomedeae Kofoid & J.R.Michener
Original publication and holotype designation: Kofoid, C.A. & Skogsberg, T. (1928). The Dinoflagellata: the Dinophysoidae [No.] XXXV. Reports on the scientific results of the expedition to the Eastern Tropical Pacific, in charge of Alexander Agassiz, by the U.S. Fish Commission Steamer "Albatross" from October 1904 to March 1905, Lieut. Commander L.M. Garrett, U.S.N., Commanding. . Memoirs of the Museum of Comparative Zoölogy, at Harvard College, Cambridge, Mass. 51: 1-766.
Description: Species in this genus are very much like those of Histioneis Stein but differ mainly by the absence of the submarginal cross-rib of the posterior cingular list. This is regarded as not sufficient for separating the species at the genus level, consequently Balech (1971b) has considered Parahistioneis synonymous with Histioneis Stein.
Information kindly contributed by M. Elbrächter but may now be outdated.
Taxonomic status: This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Histioneis.

Some of the descriptions included in AlgaeBase were originally from the unpublished Encyclopedia of Algal Genera, organised in the 1990s by Dr Bruce Parker on behalf of the Phycological Society of America (PSA) and intended to be published in CD format. These AlgaeBase descriptions are now being continually updated, and each current contributor is identified above. The PSA and AlgaeBase warmly acknowledge the generosity of all past and present contributors and particularly the work of Dr Parker.
Descriptions of chrysophyte genera were subsequently published in J. Kristiansen & H.R. Preisig (eds.). 2001. Encyclopedia of Chrysophyte Genera. Bibliotheca Phycologica 110: 1-260.
