Comments The genus name was validly published in Greville 1866, p. 125 (ref. 000985), with a description, but no species were explicitly included; later a description and illustration of Syndetocystis grevilleanus is presented in Walker et Chase 1887 p. 6 and pl. IV, fig. 13 (ref. 002868) (introduced as Syndetocystis grevilleanus [Ralfs M.S.] Grev. in litt. 1864, and described as a new species). It is clear that S. grevilleanus is conspecific with the material associated with the genus protologue, and qualifies as the lectotype. Description and illustration also found in Van Heurck 1896, p. 432, fig. 155 (ref. 000897). Ross in Farr et al. (1979) incorrectly gives Syndetocystis barbadensis Walker et Chase 1887 as the type.
