Nomenclatural notes
Masuda et al. (1995: 196) note that when Gymnogongrua ligulatus Harvey (no description) was validated by Kützing (1869: 23), no reference was made to the var. angusta at this time and the varietal epithet has not since been validated in this combination. Cryptonemia angusta Okamura (1895: 449, 478) must therefore be treated as a new name. - (24 Feb 2010) - Wendy Guiry

South & Skelton (2003) cite Cryptonemia angusta Okamura 1895 as the basionym of this species.
