Comments Caloneis was first introduced and described by Cleve in Cleve and Grove 1891 (ref. 001973), p. 66, as a subgroup of Navicula. Two new taxa were described and illustrated, they were introduced as "Navicula (Caloneis) biclavata n.sp." and "Navicula (Caloneis) oemula var? major" and 8 additional taxa cited in note p. 66; no type was designated. Caloneis is described and treated as a new genus by Cleve (1894) (ref. 000232), p. 46, including among many species the two original species of the subgroup. No type is designated in Cleve 1894. Because Cleve (1894) did not make any reference, direct or indirect, to Navicula subgroup Caloneis in Cleve & Grove 1891, it cannot be cited Caloneis (Cleve) Cleve and Boyer was free to choose the lectotype among any of the species included in 1894.
