Comments The name was published by F. Schütt in Engler & Prantl 1896 (ref. 001512), p. 83 for a section of Lauderia, with a single species, Lauderia pumilla Castracane 1886. Entry in Round, Crawford & Mann (1990), p. 142 ("Detonula Schütt 1894, Rep. Sci. Voy. 'Challenger', Bot. 2: 89, 1880. T: D. pumila (Castracane) Schütt (= Lauderia pumila)"), is incorrect; it refers probably to Castracane 1886 (ref. 000193), where the genus Lauderia is discussed p. 89 without mention of the name Detonula.. The genus name was validly published by De Toni 1894, p. 1425, who provided a generic description. No species were listed by De Toni for this genus.
