Illegitimate: superfluous name for Gracilariopsis heteroclada J.F.Zhang & B.M.Xia, which was assumed to be illegitimate because of the existence of Gracilaria heteroclada, but this name only had priority within Gracilaria and Gracilariopsis heteroclada J.F.Zhang & B.M.Xia is a legitimate and valid name. - (30 Jan 2014) - M.D. Guiry
