Nitzschia cryptostriata M.H.Hohn & J.Hellerman 1966

Publication details
Nitzschia cryptostriata M.H.Hohn & J.Hellerman 1966: 128, pl. II: fig. 11

Published in: Hohn, M.H. & Hellermann, J. (1966). New diatoms from the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal, Delaware and Chesapeake Bay area of Baltimore, Maryland. Transactions of the American Microscopical Society 85: 115-130.

Type species
The type species (holotype) of the genus Nitzschia is Nitzschia elongata Hassal.

Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Nitzschia capitellata Hustedt

Type information
Type locality: north border of Patapsco River neck, Back River, Baltimore Co., Maryland (Desianti, Potapova & Beals 2015: table 1). Holotype: 1953; in vicinity of of outfall pipe for sewage treatment plant of Baltimore. ANSP slide GC44896 (Desianti, Potapova & Beals 2015: table 1). Notes: According to Desianti et al. (2015; 105), Simonsen (1987) designated the whole slide 62/1 as the lectotype of N. capitellata but Witokowski et al. (2000) noted that this slide likely includes several species of Nitzschia. Desianti et al. consider Simonsen's pl. 103: figs 6-9 and 12-13 to have the same morphology as N. cryptostriata described by Hohn & Hollerman.

No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.
