See Athanasiadis (2016: 839, footnote 9) regarding the orthography of this name. Four nomenclatural experts unanimously agree that the original spelling of the specific epithet in the validly published name Conferva thuioides J.E.Smith (1810, pl. 2205) is to be retained and that spelling is not correctable under any provision of ICN Art. 60 or 61. - (3 Mar 2017) - M.D. Guiry
