Nakada (2016: 204) notes "Chlamydomonas planoconvexa M. O. P. Iyengar and C. pseudoplanoconvexa Desikachary were simultaneously published in Iyengar & Desikachary (1981), but Art. 36.2 of the Code is not applied, because the author of each name was different. Although the page reference to the replaced synonym of C. pseudoplanoconvexa was wrong (English description, p. 292, instead of the Latin description, p. 485), the name was validly published under Art. 41.6 of the Code." - (29 Oct 2016) - M.D. Guiry
This is a freshwater species.
