Taxonomic notes
Haslea ostrearia (Gaillon) Simonsen (in part) (and in Poulin et al. 2019) = Haslea fusidium (Grunow) Lobban & Perez 2020 (Lobban et al., 2020: 3). Poulin et al. (2019) consider Navicula fusiformis var. ostrearia (Gaillon) Cleve 1894: 106 to be a synonym of Haslea ostrearia (Gaillon) Simonsen. - (17 Feb 2021) - Wendy Guiry

Usage notes
GAILLON, Benjamin: (1782 - 1834) (1782 à Rouen-1839 à Boulogne-sur-Mer) : Cet authentique chercheur, initié à l'étude microscopique des Algues par Jean Lamouroux, professeur d'Histoire Naturelle de l'Université de Caen, était employé au Service des Douanes. Les exigences de sa profession le feront séjourner à Dieppe, rue du Pont, pendant 12 années, d'avril 1816 à juin 1828. Il se livre alors à sa passion. Il fournit des renseignements à Joseph-Alexandre Turquier-Delongchamp qui prépare un Supplément à sa Flore des environs de Rouen. Le grand succès de Gaillon est d'avoir, pendant son séjour à Dieppe, résolu l'énigme de la Viridité (=verdissement) des huîtres. On sait que l'apparition de la couleur verte donne aux Mollusques un aspect et un goût agréables. Le phénomène, très attendu par les ostréiculteurs, restait capricieux et mystérieux. Ce fut Gaillon qui, à l'aide de son méchant microscope, montra le premier que le verdissement est lié à l'ingestion par l'huître d'une algue microscopique, une Diatomée (Navicula ostrearia), dont la taille est comprise entre 60 et 120 µm. C'est le pigment vert des algues qui colore les Huîtres. Heureux dans l'étude des Algues marines, Gaillon le sera moins dans sa tentative ultérieure de réunir dans un même groupe (les Némazoaires) divers organismes marins qu'il juge intermédiaires entre les Plantes et les Animaux. Prétention qui le fera brocarder par les botanistes parisiens. Cet échec, résultat de son isolement intellectuel, n'empêche pas Gaillon d'être honorablement connu des biologistes modernes: ils n'ont pas oublié la découverte de la Viridité des Huîtres, et la rappellent volontiers dans leurs publications. Quant à nous, Dieppois, nous saurons gré à Gaillon - dont le nom était toujours suivi de la précision "de Dieppe" lors même qu'il sera transplanté à Abbeville ou à Boulogne-sur-Mer - d'avoir associé sa ville d'adoption à l'amélioration gustative des huîtres.
