Tertiarius hidalgensis Caballero, Khursevich & Velasco de León
Diatom Research 24: 24, figs. 2-19. 2009. (L)
Type: MEXU 1859, fig. 2
Type locality: Mexico: Hidalgo, Municipio de Atotonilco el Grande (20 18.290N, 98 46.865W)
Early-middle Pliocene
[named for state of Hidalgo. The generic name, according to Blanco (Notulae algarum 139. 2020) contravenes Art. 20.2, which proscribes Latin technical terms in use in morphology as generic names and is therefore not validly published. "Tertiarius", however, refers not to morphology but to a geologic time period, so arguably is not covered by the article.]
