Taxonomic notes
Two specimens of Ptilothamnion richardsii from Australia were examined by Vis et al. (2006), partial rbcL gene sequence data were obtained and the specimens were determined to be Batrachospermum antipodites, differing from that taxon by only 15bp (1.2%). Two specimens from French Guiana were shown to be within the Batrachospermum section Contorta clade. They consider it useful to continue to recognize entities with particular morphological characters and propose the form taxa Chantransia richardsii, C. macrospora and C. pygmaea. - (13 Sep 2006) - Wendy Guiry
