Diacritical Conversion

Ptilophyton Dawson, Canad. Naturalist & Quart. J. Sci. ser. 2. 8: 385. 1878.
LT.: P. vanuxemii (Dawson) Dawson (Lycopodites vanuxemii Dawson) (vide P. M. Bonamo, Taxon 32: 453. 9 Aug 1983)
Devonian (Chemungian); Ithaca, New York, U.S.A.
A. L. Takhtajan et S. G. Zhilin (Taxon 25: 577. 1976) chose (with reference to Andrews' Index) P. thomsonii as the type of the genus. This is, however, against Dawson's own statements. According to R. Kräusel et H. Weyland, Abh. Preuss. Geol. Landesanst. ser. 2. 131: 18. 1930, Ptilophyton (restricted to P. vanuxemii and P. pennaeformis) is not a plant.
