Name edit

Giraudya Derbès & Solier, in Castagne 1851 (as 'Giraudia')

  • "Sauvageau (1927) recommended [that this name should be spelled] Giraudya instead of Derbès & Solier's Giraudia because the genus was dedicated to the phycologist "Giraudy" and not "Giraud" (p. 3 adnot.)." (Silberfeld, Rousseau & Reviers 2014: 131, footnote)
