Nomenclatural notes
According to ING, Beggiatoa is a conserved name in the Bacteria and may not be affected by the Later Starting Point provisions in Art. 13 (see also Art 45, Ex. 3). The supposed basionym Oscillatoria alba Vaucher, is however treated as an alga by Vaucher and could be considered invalid under Art. 13 LSP provisions. - (12 Sep 2016) - M.D. Guiry
