Rosenvingiella australis S.Heesch & W.A.Nelson 2012
This is a marine/terrestrial species.
Filamentous algae bearing abundant rhizoids. Filaments uniseriate, rarely pluriseriate, unbranched, 20-26 µm broad; cells 1/3-1/6 as long as wide, with thick cell wall. Rhizoids unicellular, up to 150 µm long. Sexual reproduction unknown. It differs from the other species of Rosenvingiella by the thickness of the filaments and the rbcL sequence. It occurs on the shores of southern Tasmania.
Type locality: Fortescue Bay, Tasmania, Australia (43° 8' 24.440" S; 147 58' 5.25" E) (Moniz, Rindi & Guiry 2012: 93). Holotype: collected by M.D. Guiry; 2 November 2009; Supralittoral zone; mixed with Prasiola borealis on a flat rock used by seabirds for dropping marine molluscs to break their shells, with abundant bird faeces; semi-exposed to wave action. GALW 015592 (Moniz, Rindi & Guiry 2012: 93). Notes: Isotype in BM.
