As the basionym Halosacciocolax kjellmanii proposed in Clayden & Saunders (2010: 297) is invalid, Rhodophysema kejellmanii G.W.Saunders & Clayden (2010: 628) was introduced as a new name. See Figs 12-16 of Clayden & Saunders (2010). However, the name is illegitimate as the earliest available valid and legitimate name, Halosacciocolax lundii Edelstein, should have been adopted (Kanchi Natarajan Gandhi, pers. comm.). - (26 Jun 2010) - M.D. Guiry
This is a marine species.
