Origin of species name
Noun (Latin), for Louis Antoine François Baillon (1778-1851) French naturalist and collector; "baillon" is treated as a third-declension noun, the genitive of which is "baillonis".

No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.
The epithet "baillonis" is not correctable because classical authors treated names ending in "-o" or "-on" or "-son" as being third declension nouns; see Recommendation 60C.2 of the ICN. There is also a Cuphea baillonis Koehne and a Parsonsia baillonis Standl. There are also several red algae published by J. Agardh for a Mr Wilson and he used "wilsonis" for species of Epymenia, Blastophye, Horea. Hemineura, Sarcomenia and Spyridia. There is a Brachypodium wilsonis Sennen. - (3 Jun 2014) - M.D. Guiry
