Type information
Type locality: Basses Pyrénées, Guéthary; [France]; (Woelkerling & al. 2005: 38). Lectotype: Sauvageau; iii-v.1898; no habitat data. TRH A2-124 (Woelkerling & al. 2005: 38). Notes: "... slide 70; [no other collection data]; pfa: Printz 1929, pl. 53, figs 1-2; [Note: Lectotype of Lithophyllum subtenellum Foslie. Additional data — Chamberlain 1993: 112, and Woelkerling 1993: 215. Collection consists of three original round boxes housed in a newer brown box. Largest round box contains specimens and is marked with collection data and with ‘Lpm. subtenellum delvis [= in part]’. Smaller two round boxes (both empty) are marked with collection data. One also marked ‘Lithoph. subtenellum (L. incrustans og [= and] Lithoth. sonderi)’ and ‘præp. [= slide] 70’. Other also marked with pfa data and with ‘Lithoph. subtenellum delvis [= in part]’ and ‘anth. konc. [= antheridial conceptacles]’. Grouped with A2- 125 under one entry in Adey & Lebednik 1967: 17. Adey & Lebednik indicated that four boxes occurred, but only two were found during the present study]" (Woelkering et al. 2005: 38).

Nomenclatural notes
"Based on Athanasiadis (2016: 289), the taxonomic position of this species is uncertain, since it has been associated with both Lithophyllum orbiculatum (Foslie) Foslie and Hydrolithon samoense (Foslie) Keats & Chamberlain. In Greece, Goniolithon subtenellum has been reported by Giaccone (1968a) from the Aegean Sea but without documentation. The species is accepted by CORMACI et al. (2017) as Lithophyllum orbiculatum (Foslie) Foslie." (Tsiamis & Panayotidis 2019). - (19 Jan 2021) - M.D. Guiry
