Nomenclatural notes
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
