Abstract:

It is recommended that the name Dasya baillouviana not be conserved with a conserved type; the committee is undecided on the proposal to conserve Achnanthes brevipes against A. adnata, A. bacillarioides, and A. dubia, and is seeking more comments by diatom specialists. Sycidium and Sykidion were considered not sufficiently alike to be confused, but the committee is undecided on the confusability ofSycidiaceae withSykidiaceae andSycidiales withSykidiales. Recommendations are made on the membership of the Special Committee on Harmonization of the Nomenclature of Cyanophyta/Cyanobacteria established in 2005 but yet to be set up. The Committee's views on some modifications to the ICBN are presented including some proposals that might be made from the floor at the forthcoming Congress in Melbourne.
