CHIROPTERIDIUM Gocht, 1960, p.221. Taxonomic junior synonym: Galea Maier (an illegitimate name), by implication in Sarjeant (1983, p.108), who transferred the "type species" of Galea, Galea galea, to Chiropteridium. Taxonomic junior synonym: Membranophoridium, according to Brosius (1963, p.47) and Schindler (1992, p.202) - however, Lentin and Williams (1993, p.421) retained Membranophoridium. Type: Gocht, 1960, pl.17, fig.1, as Chiropteridium lobospinosum.
