Lectotype, by present designation. BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00861-002: USA, Florida, Gulf Stream off Cape Florida, 45 fm (82 m), one colony fragment, 1.5 cm high, in good condition, without gonophores; slide.

Paralectotypes. CAS-IZ 0 21804.00: USA, Florida, USS Fish hawk Sta. 7511, Gulf Stream off Cape Florida, 2 1/ 8 miles (3.4 km) SSE of “Fovey Rock Light” (=Fowey Rocks Light), 45 fm (82 m), 25 May 1903, numerous colony fragments, in poor condition, with Aglaophenia rigida  (= A. trifida Agassiz, 1862  ), labelled “ syntype ”; 10% formalin.

Type locality. USA, Florida: Gulf Stream off Cape Florida, 2 1/ 8 miles (3.4 km) SSE of Fowey Rock Light, 45 fm (82 m) ( Fraser 1925).

Current status. Valid, as Gymnangium sinuosum ( Fraser, 1925)  .

Remarks. In describing Halicornaria sinuosa  , no name-bearing type was fixed by Fraser (1925). However, syntype material of Halicornaria sinuosa  was located at both the CASAbout CAS (CAS-IZ 0 21804.00) and the RBCMAbout RBCM ( BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00861-001, BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00861-002). The material at CASAbout CAS is fragmentary and in poor condition. We therefore designate the best available syntype material as the lectotype ( BCPMAbout BCPM 976-00861-002).

The species, now assigned to genus Gymnangium Hincks 1874  as G. sinuosum  , is regarded as valid ( Cairns et al. 2002; Calder & Cairns 2009; WoRMS). The synonymy of this species has been listed elsewhere, along with redescriptions, additional illustrations, and taxonomic remarks ( Bogle 1975; Calder 1997; Ansín Agís et al. 2001).
