Nomenclatural notes
Hydrolithon pachydermum (Foslie) Bailey, Gabel & Freshwater 2004, invalid: basionym not cited [cites Porolithon pachydermum (Foslie) Foslie] (INA). - (16 May 2014) - Wendy Guiry

Taxonomic notes
Gabrielson et al. (2018) based on DNA sequencing of type material of L. onkodes f. pachydermum Foslie, basionym of P. pachydermum (Foslie) Foslie, concluded that P. pachydermum is conspecific with P. antillarum (Foslie) Foslie. Earlier, Maneveldt & Keats (2014), based on a morpho-anatomical study of type material of both taxa, concluded that P. antillarum (Foslie) Foslie was a heterotypic synonym of P. onkodes, a result not supported by the DNA sequence data.. - (31 Dec 2014) - Paul Gabrielson
