Batrachospermum moniliforme var. guianense Montagne 1840
This is a freshwater species.
As Batrachospermum cayennense is based on same type as Batrachospermum moniliforme var. guianense Montagne 1840, and is an earlier name, it has nomenclatural priority over a combination based on the varietal epihtet as taxa only have priority in their own rank. - (24 May 2006) - Wendy Guiry
