Hormidium mucosum Boye Petersen

Type information
Type locality: Ro, Bornholm, Denmark (Lokhorst 1996: 34). Lectotype: 12 October 1912; road in plantation, on naked clay soil. C [herbarium specimen] annotated as "Hormidium mucosum n. sp. (Lokhorst 1996: 34). Notes: Lectotype designated by Lokhorst & Star (1985: 474). Strain SAG 8.96 was isolated by Lokhorst (original number KL 63) from soil near the water level of the river Dommel near Valkenswaard (the Netherlands). It is designated as epitype by Mikhailyuk et al. (2015: 764) to support the lectotype and is the authentic strain of K. mucosum (cryopreserved in liquid nitrogen in the SAG).
