Comments Type by monotypy. Authorship in Farr et al. (1979) is L.W. Bailey, however, the authorship as shown above is more accurate. In this paper Loring W. Bailey published his father's (J.W. Bailey) notes, with some interpretation. Genus also described as new in Bailey 1862, p. 341 (ref. 000125). Although the date "1862" is printed on the volume, ref. 007053 was published in September 1861 (according to current internet version of the ING, see ING entry for Ditylum). Althought the date "July 1861" is printed in footnotes of ref. 000125, actual publication date is 1862 (according to current version of the ING, see ING entry for Polymyxus). Navarro & De Periborio (in Europ. J. Phycol. 28, 167-172. 1993), designated the lectotype for P. coronalis.
