|Generitype||T: Ctenophora pulchella (Ralfs ex Kützing) Williams & Round 1986) (= Synedra pulchella Ralfs ex Kützing (1844)|
|Comments||Name first validly published as a subgenus (Gruppe) of Synedra (see Grunow 1862, p. 385, ref. 000428) (p. 71 of reprint ). Williams and Round 1986 give a new status to the name Ctenophora, elevating it to the rank of genus. Type is given as C. pulchella (Ralfs ex Kützing) Williams & Round, in accordance with Frenguelli (1929) (ref. 000345) who typified Synedra subgenus Ctenophora Grunow with S. pulchella .|
