Nomenclatural notes
Skaloud et al. (2018: 243) comment "This alga, originally collected from bark of birch trees in Silesia, consists of elliptical cells 16-24 µm wide and 20-48 µm long, with spherical gametangia 24-30 µm wide. It forms a complex of morphologically similar species with T. odorata and T. umbrina, in which species boundaries are difficult to draw; in recent years, T. bleischii has been mostly regarded as conspecific with T. odorata, particularly its variety elongata (Rabenhorst) Wille. A reassessment of these entities based on DNA sequence data from collections from the type localities is necessary. Pending such reassessment, T. bleischii is best considered a species of uncertain identity. Same considerations apply to Trentepohlia betulina, which is morphologically indistinguishable from T. bleischii (Hariot 1890)." - (22 Mar 2018) - M.D. Guiry
