Published in: Nielsen, R. (1979). Culture studies on the type species of Acrochaete, Bolbocoleon and Entocladia (Chaetophoraceae, Chlorophyceae). Botaniska Notiser 132: 441-449, 3 figs.

Type species
The type species (holotype) of the genus Acrochaete is Acrochaete repens Pringsheim.

Type information
Type locality: Napoli, Italy (Silva, Basson & Moe 1996: 724). Type: on Derbesia [ = Pedobesia] lamourouxii. KIEL (Womersley 1984: 133). Notes: "Type material could not be located, so, for the present, the species must be typified by the original figures of Reinke 1879" (O'’Kelly & Yarish (1981: 33). The name has been lectotypified by the original illustration (Reinke 1879, pl. VI: fig. 6, although the authors cited pl. "17") by Brodie, Maggs & John 2007: 117). However, it was already lectotypified by Burrows (1991: 113): original illustration (Reinke, 1879, fig. 6). [See also Nielsen et al. (2013: 53)]. Epitype designated (by Nielsen et al. 2013: 53): C: Cat 2456 (dried material of isolate RN 275478).

Origin of species name

Taxonomic notes
