When I am reviewing papers I frequently use the and
mostly find it an excellent way to get information. However, sometimes the
valid names are different than in most other sources. Now I am going
through a manuscript to a popular photoflora on seaweeds in the Baltic Sea
and the authors are very keen on getting the correct names etc. and we are
discussing the correct names for the following species as well as higher

1) Enteromorpha ahlneriana is  according to the data base not a valid name
and it should be named E. procera. Is that accepted by most and how for the
comment that it according to some authors is a synonym to E. prolifera?

2) Enteromorpha clathrata is still kept in the data base although Blomster
et al. 1999 proposed it to be the same as E. muscoides with a priority for
the latter. Is E. clathrata still accepted by most people?

3) Ulvopsis grevillei is according to the data base back as Monostroma
grevillei. Do most people agree to that?

4) Ceramium nodulosum replaced C. rubrum when Maggs & Hommersand published
the Ceramiales part of the Seaweeds of the British Isles. The data base has
it back as C. rubrum. Is that accepted by most people (it certainly would
be easier for students to remember)?

The data base does not recognize Florideophyceae and Bangiophyceae as
classes as in most of the recent text books. Why?

Many of the previously used orders within Phaeophyceae are no longer used
in the data base. Why?

Among the green algae the data base gives the class Chlorphyceae for most
of them (except Charophyceae) Why?

Any comments by people who are more experienced than I am in taxonomy would
be most welcome. Thanks in advance
