Notes on this Genus
The genus Zymonema was initially poorly defined and different people have used it in different ways (taxonomy). This is why it is considered as nomen dubium (nomenclature). Therefore it is essentially impossible to determine what is a synoym of. Based upon where it as first used, we think that it was probably a name connected to the genus Blastomyces (as in the genus that holds Blastomyces dermatitidis).
