Status of name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.

Basionym
Conferva riparia Roth

Type information
Type locality: Norderney, East Frisian Islands, Germany (Silva, Basson & Moe 1996: 786). Lectotype: Mertens; BM (ex K) (Womersley 1984: 170). Notes: Womersley (1984: 170) notes that the holotype was destroyed.

(Latin), growing on river banks, belonging to the shore (Dawes & Mathieson 2008).

Homotypic Synonym(s)
Conferva riparia Roth 1806
Cladophora riparia f. Harvey (Roth) J.D.Hooker & Harvey 1847
Tiresias riparia (Roth) Areschoug 1851
Rhizoclonium hieroglyphicum var. riparium (Roth) Stockmayer 1889

Heterotypic Synonym(s)
Rhizoclonium panniosum Kützing
Rhizoclonium salinum Kützing
Rhizoclonium implexum (Dillwyn) Kützing 1845
Rhizoclonium kerneri Stockmayer 1890

Nomenclatural notes
Lawson & John (1987) cite this species as Rhizoclonium riparium (Roth) Kützing in Harvey, 1849. While the name on the for the text for pl. CCXXXVIII is "Rhizoclonium riparium Kütz." this appears to be an error.

Taxonomic notes
According to Burrows (1991) and Guiry (1997) include this as a synonym of Rhizoclonium tortuosum (Dillwyn) Kützing. Silva, Basson & Moe (1996) regard this as a separate species. John et al. (2004) cite Rhizoclonium riparium var. implexum (Dillwyn) Rosenv., R. implexum (Dillwyn) Kütz. and Lola implexum (Harv.) Hamel as synonyms. They note that all records of R. implexum and L. implexum are now placed under R. riparium var. implexum, see John et al. (2003). "Species complex (Skaloud et al. 2018: 207).

General environment
This is a marine/freshwater species.
