The type species (holotype) of the genus Batrachospermum is Batrachospermum gelatinosum (Linnaeus) De Candolle.
Status of name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.
No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.
Chiasson et al. (2014: 305) note that Sheath et al. (1994) placed this taxon in synonymy with B. helminthosum based on Siradot's description, but did not examine the type specimen of this taxon. Therefore, they have chosen to recognize it as a separate taxon until the type specimen can be examined and confirmed. - (25 Sep 2014) - Wendy Guiry
