Comments Five new species of Grammatophora are described in Ehrenberg 1840 (ref. 000290, p. 72-74): G. africana, G. angulosa, G. mexicana, G. oceanica, G. undulata, and no type is designated. See also Ehrenberg 1840 (ref. 000292), p. 161, where Grammatophora is described as a new genus and 3 new species described: G. oceanica, G. mexicana, G. undulata, and no type designated. It is not obvious which one of 000290 or 000292 was first published (according to ING 1996, ref. 000292 was published Oct. 1840). Also described as new in Ehrenberg 1841, p. 126 (ref. 000953) (ref. 000953 and 000290 are identical except for pagination).
