Nomenclatural notes
"Campbell gave an account of a species that he called Gymnodinium translucens from the polyhaline portion of Gales Creek, North Carolina, USA. His account was accompanied by a drawing that does not match the drawings in Kofoid and Swezy's description of G. translucens. As we think Campbell used this name by mistake, we have (below) re-named this species Gymnodinium campbelli Thessen, Patterson & Murray. This species has been observed in the Chesapeake Bay" (Thessen, Patterson & Murray 2012: 6). This does not seem to consititute a validation of this name under the current rules of botanical nomenclature. - (4 May 2013) - M.D. Guiry
