Nomenclatural notes
Devalidated name (INA). Strunecky et al. (2013) cite P. vulgare Kützing ex Gomont but see note for Microcoleus vulgaris. - (13 Feb 2014) - Wendy Guiry

INA notes: "Gomont (1892) treated Phormidium vulgare as a synonym of P. autumnalis, so M. vulgaris cannot be based on a Gomont name. Microcoleus vulgaris must be lectotypified with a specimen not nomenclaturally entangled with P. autumnalis." - (22 Apr 2014) - M.D. Guiry

General environment
This is a terrestrial species.
