Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature As Corallina Tubularia Melitensis in Ellis, 1755 this is a pre-Linnaean name, and as such does not enter nomenclature. However, information regarding the species can be used. Here the Corallina "Tubularia Melitensis" is given species status. There should be no hyphen in the name (necessarily artificially included). This trinominal name does not conform to current syntax conventions. At the time 'Tubularia' was not equivalent to either a subgenus or a species epithet. Ellis was describing a "Tubular Coralline", and his description is of "curious tubes with their Animals ...". There is no separate species entity called Corallina tubularia to which C. tubularia melitensis could be a subspecies. The name Melitensis is Latin for Malta, from where the specimens derived. [details]
