Status of name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.
Stichococcus fluitans F.Gay
Neotype locality: Lake Westeinderplassen near Rijsenhout, The Netherlands (Lokhorst 1996: 20). Neotype: G.M. Lokhorst; 17 November 1992; sheet piling, lake. L (Lokhorst 1996: 20). Notes: Epitype: Strain SAG 9.96 designated by Mikhailyuk et al. (2015: 764) to support the neotype specified above and proposed here as the authentic strain of K. fluitans; it is cryopreserved in liquid nitrogen in the SAG. They note that strain SAG 9.96 was isolated by Lokhorst from the neotype locality (original number Kl 22). Type locality: France: Herault (Lez R.; Montpelier Botanical Garden); collector: Huber (INA).
