Editors' Notes
UNUSED HAECKELIAN GENERIC-GROUP TAXA (UHG)
Haeckel (1882, 1887) created hundreds of sub-genera as part of his massive report on the radiolaria of the Challenger expedition. Many subsequent workers have disregarded these sub-genera, even while using other aspects of his scheme and this has now become the conventional approach. So the vast majority of these sub-genera are essentially redundant. Nonetheless they are nomenclaturally valid and it is important to note that, under the ICZN, generic and sub-generic names are treated together as "generic group names". This means that a sub-generic name can also be used at generic level, without change of authorship or priority. So, when taxa are revised, and especially if genera are divided, it will be essential to check the Haeckel sub-genera to see which names have priority.
Here all the sub-genera described in  Haeckel (1882) or Haeckel (1887) are listed together, whilst the species are listed in the genera they were described in. The only exceptions are the, rather few, cases where the sub-genera have subsequently been used at generic level. [editor's comment - JRY 2019]
