homotypic synonym, validly published under the ICNP, illegitimate name
Pirellulamarina 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 Pirellula.
Replacement of the illegitimate name Pirella marina Schlesner 1987, which is illegitimate because of precedence of the fungal genus Pirella Bainier 1883 [Rule 51b(4)].Publication:
