Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Actinodiscus contabulatus (A.W.F.Schmidt) R.Ross & P.A.Sims
This is a fossil species seemingly without extant populations.
No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.
Illegitimate: according to CAS "New name for Gyroptychus contabulatus Schmidt. Mann indicates that this name is synonymous with Gyroptychus contabulatus A. Schmidt 1890 and Polymyxus schleinitzii Janisch (Gazelle exp. unpubl. ms. ca 1888). Janisch manuscript (ref. 000541) however was never published and Mann should have used the epithet contabulatus when transferring this species to genus Actinodiscus." - (19 Aug 2019) - M.D. Guiry
