Both G. harveyana J. Agardh and G. paradoxa J. Agardh appear to be based on Harvey's ms name of Chondria paradoxa given to Clifton specimens from Swan R., W. Aust.; apparently J. Agardh first gave it the name G. harveyana and later reverted to Harvey's name paradoxa (Womersley 1996: 27). - (24 Feb 2009) - Wendy Guiry
