zos03 | Herewith I validate the Posidonietalia oceanicae by designating the Posidonion oceanicae Br.-Bl. ex Molinier 1960 as the holotypus (hoc loco) of the order. Posidonia oceanica is the only character species of this order. The typification of the Posidonietalia (using the Posidonion Br.-Bl. et al. 1952) by Bardat et al. (2004) is invalid since the Posidonion Br.-Bl. et al. 1952 was invalidly described. Accordingly, the validation of the Posidonietea oceanicae (Bardat et al. 2004) is also invalid. Given the preference of some authors to use the Posidonietea oceanicae as an acceptable syntaxonomic concept in its own right, here I validate the name of the class by designating the validated Posidonietalia oceanicae Den Hartog ex Mucina in Mucina et al. 2015 as the holotypus (hoc loco) of the class. (LM).
