Taxonomic remark Not to be confused with Endlicher's 1842 orth. var. for Pytys Endlicher 1837. (Index Nominum Genericorum). Original spelling: Pitu. Nom. cons., orth. cons. Doweld, 2013 proposed to conserve this genus name against Pinites Lindl. & Hutton, however that proposal was rejected by the Nomenclature Committee on Fossils (Herendeen, 2016) who stated: We do not agree with Doweld’s assertions as to
the earlier valid publication of the generic name Pitys [sic: possibly error for Pinites]. Not only is the “description” flawed in that it describes simply a preservational artefact, we also do not accept the suggestion that the species name was validly published there by reference to its figure (t. 2) in the preceding issue of the book. The committee concluded that the proposal is superfluous. [details]
