PALYNODINIUM Gocht, 1970a, p.135,137-138,140. Loeblich Jr. and Loeblich III (1971, p.312) argued that the generic name Palynodinium was not validly published in Gocht (1970a) since no description or diagnosis was provided. However, since Gocht (1970a) proposed the genus and a single species, and provided a description for the species, under I.C.B.N. Article 42.1 both the generic and specific names must be considered validly published. A generic description was given by Gocht (1973, p.456). Type: Gocht, 1970a, fig.4, nos.1a-c, as Palynodinium grallator.
