Abstract:

Six slides labelled "Nitophyllum martensioides", located in the slide collection of Schmitz's red algal types in the Natural History Museum, London (BM), can be identified as Opephyllum martensii Schmitz (Schmitz & Hauptfleisch, 1897). Label data fully correspond to the protologue of O. martensii (collected by Martens from Mindanao, Philippines). This collection of six slides from a single gathering is, therefore, interpreted to be the holotype for the name Opephyllum martensii, superseding the neotype recently proposed by Lin & al. (2001).
