See addendum of Scott & Prescott (1961) p. 126: "After this paper was set in page form, and too late to make the necessary changes, we received from Japan a reprint of a paper by Taketoshi HINODE, "On some Japanese Desmids (3)", Hibokia 2(2), July 1960, in which he describes Euastrum horikawae sp. nov. This is evidently the same as E. prowsei nob., though our specimens from Borneo are somewhat larger than those from Japan. HINODE's name for the plant has priority, and therefore E. prowsei is a synonym for E. horikawae Hinode." - (29 Jan 2018) - Alex Kenins
This is a freshwater species.
