Nomenclatural notes
Microcoleus vulgaris (Kützing ex Gomont) Strunecky, Komárek & Johansen comb. nov. - Basionym: P. vulgare Kützing ex Gomont (Strunecky et al. 2013: 1177). New name (INA). Gomont (1892) treated Phormidium vulgare as a synonym of P. autumnalis, so M. vulgaris cannot be based on a Gomont name. Microcoleus vulgaris must be lectotypified with a specimen not nomenclaturally entangled with P. autumnalis (INA). - (13 Feb 2014) - Wendy Guiry
