Bory says p. 461 (in French):"...we had established this genus more than 20 years ago under the name Archimedea...., However, since De Candolle published it later (Flor. Franc. T. II, p. 48) (1805, ref. 000265) under this current name (Diatoma), we adopted this designation....About the 6 or 8 species known to us the following are the most common: Diatoma vulgaris... Diatoma danica...". No type designated in Bory.
