Abstract

The genus Falsolikanella Granier was introduced by Granier (1987) based on the basal Cretaceous species Likanella campanensis Azéma & Jaffrezo (1972), and assigned to the tribe Diploporeae (Pia) within the green alga order Dasycladales. Later, other species were assigned to Falsolikanella. Sections of the type-specimens of Likanella campanensis are reviewed. They show that in this species, the arrangement of the laterals is not metaspondyl, but typical of the genus Actinoporella (Gümbel), with coronae arising from a single primary lateral. Therefore, the species is assigned to the genus Actinoporella within the tribe Acetabularieae Decaisne, family Polyphysaceae Kützing, and the generic attribution of other species previously assigned to Falsolikanella is discussed.
