Recent revisions von Stosch 1986 (ref. 006657)
Comments Two species are originally included (D. trigonum, and D. inaequale) and no type is designated. Also described as new in Bailey 1862, pg. 332 (ref. 000125), with the same species included, and no type designated. 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). Boyer (1927), p. 117, gives for type D. intricatum (T. West) Grun. in Van Heurck 1881 indicating the synonymy of Triceratium intricatum West 1860 with D. trigonum J.W. Bailey ex L.W. Bailey 1861.Von Stosch 1986 (ref. 006657) incorrectly gives D. brightwellii as the type. Genus name sometimes misspelled Ditylium.
