Klebsormidium bilatum Lokhorst 1996
This is a freshwater/terrestrial species.
Type locality: near Staverden, The Netherlands (Lokhorst 1996: 28). Type: G.M. Lokhorst; 24 November 1992; algal coat luxuriantly growing on bark on the foot of an oak tree. L (Hulburt 1956: 28). Notes: Epitype: strain SAG 7.96 designated by Mikhailyuk et al. (2015: 764) to support the type specified above; it is proposed as the authentic strain of K. elegans and is cryopreserved in liquid nitrogen in the SAG. Strain SAG 7-96 was isolated by Lokhorst from the type locality(original number KL 24).
