An examination of Pachymenia and Aeodes (Halymeniaceae, Rhodophyta) in New Zealand and the transfer of two species of Aeodes in South Africa to Pachymenia (45:1389–99).

L. K. Russell, C. L. Hurd, W. A. Nelson, and J. E. Broom.

The new combination of Pachymenia orbitosa (p. 1397) incorrectly cited F. Schmitz as the author of the basionym. This is corrected as follows:

Pachymenia orbitosa (Suhr) L. Russell comb. nov.

Basionym: Iridaea orbitosa Suhr 1840: 276. In: Suhr J. N. (1840) Beiträge zur Algenkunde. Flora 23: 273–82.

Synonym: Aeodes orbitosa (Suhr) F. Schmitz 1894: 630.

The new combination of Pachymenia ulvoidea (p. 1397) was not properly validated (Art. 33.4 of the ICBN) as the page reference and date of publication of the basionym were not fully cited. This is corrected as follows:

Pachymenia ulvoidea (F. Schmitz) L. Russell comb. nov.

Basionym: Aeodes ulvoidea F. Schmitz 1894: 630. In: Schmitz, F. (1894) Kleinere Beiträge zur Kenntniss der Florideen. IV. Nuova Notarisia 5: 608–35.

We thank Professors M. Wynne and M. Hommersand for bringing to our attention the errors made in describing the new combinations.
