Notes:
Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

The type-species was established in combination with the generic name * Gracilaria at that time an incorrect subsequent spelling of Gracillaria Haworth, 1928. From a multiple original spelling in which Neurostrota and * Neurostrata were used, Vari, 1961, Transv. Mus. Mem. 12: 42, acted as first reviser under the Code (Edn 3), Article 24, and chose Neurostrota as the name to denote the taxon.
