Comments Several species are illustrated in the Atlas (H. Peragallo & M. Peragallo 1899, ref. 001054) on pl. 72, fig. 25-28, but no generic description was provided in association with these illustrations. The validating description was subsequently published, in Part 2 of the Text (H. Peragallo & M. Peragallo 1900, ref. 000733), p. 298. Part II was published between 1899 and 1901 according to Stafleu & Cowan 1983 (ref. 007024); pp. 263, 268 of Part II were published in 1900 according to Farr et al. (1979). The genus name is spelled Pseudo-Nitzchia on p. 298 and Pseudo-Nitzschia on p. 263 and pl. 72. Two species were originally included, Pseudo-nitzschia sicula (Castr.) Perag. (plus var. bicuneata and var. migrans) and Pseudo-Nitzschia seriata (Cleve) Perag. (plus var. fraudulenta); no type was originally designated. Fryxell et al. (1991) (ref. 006796) treated this genus as a section of Nitzschia and typified it with Nitzchia seriata. See also Hasle (1965) (ref. 002452), p. 7, who emended the description of Pseudo-Nitzschia.
