 Comments
       
  Comment: Recommendation 16A.1 of the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature (Greuter et al. 2000), which applies to the red algae, states that "A name of a division or phylum should end in -phyta unless the taxon is a division or phylum of fungi, in which case its name should end in -mycota"
