As it is in most fields of natural product chemistry with a long standing tradition, nomenclature of linear oligopyrroles and bile pigments is rather complicated and inhomogeneous. Although a working party was set up by the Commission for Nomenclature in Organic Chemistry and the Commission for Biochemical Nomenclature, which as a result published recommendations on the nomenclature of tetrapyrroles [10] and will probably provide revisions in the future, problems will remain.
