Nomenclatural notes
"Übrigens muss der neue Name K. lunaris und nicht lunata geschrieben werden, da Kirchner seine Varietät als lunaris bezeichnet. In Seh midies citierter Arbeit steht Kirchneriella lunata und als Synonym Baph. conv. var. lunara, verdruckt aus lunare, da Kirchner das Adjektiv auf das Genus bezogen hat und nicht, wie es richtiger wäre, auf varietas." - (1 Sep 2014) - M.D. Guiry
