Comments Although Witkowski et al., p. 31, erroneously state that Ehrenberg’s genus Odontodiscus (Ehrenberg 1845, p. 72, ref. 000955) was invalid when published, and that Ehrenbergia is created for the species subsequently included in Odontodiscus by Grunow in Cleve & Grunow 1880 (Odontodiscus granulosus), Ehrenbergia Witkowki et al. is not superfluous since it does not include any of the 3 original species originally included in Odontodiscus by Ehrenberg (Odontodiscus eccentricus, O. spica, O. uranus). Type by original designation. Two species originally included. Valid. Thalassiosirales (EF).
