Nomenclatural notes
According to Santelices & Rico (2002: 437), Feldmann & Hamel noted that the name had been used by Spach in 1841 for a genus in the Polygonaceae (angiosperms), making Kützing's Echinocaulon a later synonym and that they proposed Gelidiella Feldmann & Hamel (1936) as a replacement. Santelices & Rico note the proposal of the new name was in accordance with th ICBN (Greuter et al. 2000). However, Silva (Index Nominum Algarum) argues that the new name is illegitimate as it was an unwarranted change of epithet. He also considers Parviphycus tenuissimus to be illegitimate as it is the intended combination of Gelidiella tenuissima J. Feldmann & G. Hamel 1936 (illeg.), a viw that is supported by G.Furnari (in Furnari et al. 2010: 828). - (24 Apr 2007) - Wendy Guiry
