Leptolyngbyabadia is the correct name if this species is regarded as a separate species (i.e., if its nomenclatural type is not assigned to another species whose name is validly published, legitimate and not rejected and has priority) within a separate genus Leptolyngbya.
The authority of the taxon name (Johansen and Lowe) deliberately differs from the authors of the publication (Johansen et al.).
