This is a preliminary entry and has not been subject to full verification.
Klebsormidium flaccidum var. nitens (Kützing) T.Mrozinska 1990: 46, nom. inval.
The type species (holotype) of the genus Klebsormidium is Klebsormidium flaccidum (Kützing) P.C.Silva, K.R.Mattox & W.H.Blackwell.
Origin of species name
Adjective (Latin), flaccid, not able to hold up its own weight (Stearn 1973).
No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.
Invalid: trinomial incorrectly attributed to Meneghini; basionym [Ulothrix nitens Kützing] not cited (INA). - (31 Aug 2011) - Wendy Guiry
There seems to be disagreement concerning the authority for Ulothrix nitens. Meneghini in Kützing is cited by Lokhorst (1996) and Novis (2006) but Kützing 1849: 349 (Sp. Alg.) is cited by Index Nominum Algarum. Consequently, this affects the citation of the authority for Klebsormidium nitens and synonyms. - (31 Aug 2011) - Wendy Guiry
This is a terrestrial species.
