Carolibrandtia nom. nov. as a replacement name for Brandtia Hoshina (Chlorellaceae, Trebouxiophyceae)
- Hoshina, Ryo, Nakada, Takashi
- Phycological research 2018 v.66 no.1 pp. 82-83
- Arundinella, Chlorellaceae, algae, homonym
- Recently, the genus name Brandtia Hoshina was given for a chlorellacean symbiotic alga residing in some ciliate species. However, it was found that Brandtia Hoshina 2017 is an illegitimate later homonym of Brandtia Kunth 1831. Therefore, a replacement name, Carolibrandtia nom. nov., for Brandtia Hoshina is here proposed.
