Abstract:In December 1966, several new taxa from the Cenomanian of England were validly published and named as part of larger study on Mesozoic and Cainozoic dinoflagellate cysts (papers by Davey, Downie, Sarjeant and Williams in Bull. Brit. Mus. Nat. Hist., Supplement 3, 1966). A subsequent publication on dinoflagellate cyst assemblages from the Chalk of the Isle of Wight, England (Clarke and Verdier, 1967) included independent descriptions of these same taxa under different names: these latter names are junior synonyms and must be rejected, under Article 57 of the "International Code of Botanical Nomenclature". These names are here listed. In certain other cases, the diagnoses of certain genera and species are closely comparable but it is not at present considered that they are synonymous. These cases are noted and the reasons for retaining different names are discussed.
