Comments Lectotypification by monotypification. Name first introduced in vol. 1, p. 593 (1822) under the entry "Arthrodiées". Description of the genus is given and 2 species are mentioned: Conferva pectinalis Müller and Conferva bronchialis Roth as "types" (= syntypes) no generitype designated (Bory, stated in the protologue that the two species "présentent indifféremment l'une et l'autre le type du genre Nématoplate"). Nematoplata is also treated in Bory 1827 (vol. 11, p. 498-499, ref. 000145). In this volume, Bory describes 3 species: N. bronchialis, N. argentea and N. subquadrata, he does not explicitly designate a type, but he lists Nematoplata bronchialis (Roth) Bory with Conferva pectinalis O. Müller as a synonym. We accept Bory's action (of placing into synonymy the 2 original species) as the lectotypification (by monotypification) of the genus.
