Abstract:

Tubifera J.F. Gmel. 1792 is a genus of Myxomycetes that has been used in floras and monographs since the 18th century. The name became controversial when it appeared that “Tubulifera Jacq.” 1779 was a priorable name for the genus. This paper presents a history of the controversy, interprets Jacquin's original text, and offers reasons why “Tubulifera” cannot be regarded as a validly published generic name. The name Tubifera J.F. Gmel. is thus shown to remain the correct name for the genus.
