Comments Type by monotypy. Fragilaria castracanei De Toni 1892 (ref. 000950) p. 687 is a new name given by De Toni to replace Fragilaria antarctica Castracane 1886 (non Schwartz 1877). Medlin & Sims 1993 (ref. 006582) transferred Pseudo-eunotia doliolus, the type of Pseudo-eunotia Grunow in Van Heurck 1881, to genus Fragilariopsis. Because Pseudo-eunotia predates Fragilariopsis, Fragilariopsis would become illegitimate (as later nomenclatural synonym of Pseudo-eunotia) by the inclusion of Pseudo-eunotia doliolus , unless Fragilariopsis is conserved against Pseudo-eunotia. Such conservation has not been formally proposed yet.
