Publication details
Lyngbya wollei (Farlow ex Gomont) Speziale & Dyck 1992: 704

Published in: Speziale, B.J. & Dyck, L.A. (1992). Lyngbya infestations: comparative taxonomy of Lyngbya wollei comb. nov. (Cyanobacteria). Journal of Phycology 28(5): 693-706, 13 figs, 5 tables.

Type species
The type species (holotype) of the genus Lyngbya is Lyngbya confervoides C.Agardh ex Gomont.

Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Microseira wollei (Farlow ex Gomont) G.B.McGregor & Sendall ex Kenins

Basionym
Plectonema wollei Farlow ex Gomont

Type information
Lectotype locality: Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. (Drouet 1968: 175). Lectotype: Rev. Francis Wolle No. 50; freshwater pond. FH (Drouet 1968: 175). Notes: Speziale & Dyck 1992: 705) also designated as lectotype another specimen collected by Wolle; however, Drouet's selection must be followed (Kenins 2017: 1).

Synonym(s)
No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.

Usage notes
Chris Williams (cdwillcl@BELLSOUTH.NET) writes (8 August 2005): "Lyngbya wollei has been shown to produce saxitoxins (Carmichael et al., 1997: Onodera et al 1997). Some preliminary data from our group (Glen Shaw's lab. in Australia did the analyses) for L. wollei collected in Florida showed that it also produced low levels of debromoaplysiatoxin."

General environment
This is a marine/freshwater species.
