Comments Three species are included in this genus by Bory (p. 79-80): Achnanthes adnata Bory, A. bacillarioides Bory & A. dubia Bory. According to Bory, these 3 species are grouped together by Lyngbye (Tent. Hydroph., p. 210, pl. 70B. 1819) under the name Echinella stipitata. Bory also wrote (p. 593): "Une Echinelle de Lyngbye est le type de ce genre." Lange-Bertalot & Compère 1997 (ref. 006890) proposed to conserve the name Achnanthes with a conserved type, A. minutissima Kützing. This proposal has been rejected by the permanent committee for algal nomenclature (pers. com. of P. Compère, secretary of the committee).
