Zaneveld 1940 says p. 91: "Some confusion has been introduced into the nomenclature by Braun's attempt to establish the appropriate name of Nitella polyglochin for the collective species furcata (1882, p. 73), including------- The name polyglochin however, was already used for all Brachydactylae. N. Roxburghii, published in 1849, seems to be identic with Bruzelius's Chara furcata published in 1824 and was already transferred in the same year to the genus Nitella by Agardh. Therefore the name furcata is valid for the collective species." - (6 May 2010) -
