Nomenclatural notes
Illegitimate: G. Furnari (e-mail, 7 April 2010). " Hydrolithon masakii was proposed as nomen novum, based on Porolithon orbiculatum. But, since no Hydrolithon orbiculatum was previously described so that no homonymy should have resulted transferring Porolithon orbiculatum to the genus Hydrolithon, H. masakii is nomenclaturally superfluous." - (7 Apr 2010) - M.D. Guiry

General environment
