The following three names are recommended for conservation: Achnanthes brevipes against A. adnata, A. baccillarioides, and A. dubia, and with a conserved type; Sphacelaria with a conserved type; and Dasya, nom. cons. against Rhodonema. As result of reference under Art. 53.5, it is recommended that the genus names Sykidion and Sycidium and all the higher taxa based on these names are not to be considered confusingly similar and thus cannot be treated as (para-)homonyms.
