Nomenclatural notes
Some confusion concerning the taxonomic authorities exists because Willi Krieger (1935: 296) gives Wittrock as the author of the basionym; Wittrock in Wittrock & Nordstedt (1879) only mention an unnamed forma with the species attributed to Ehrenberg (1838) thus predating Ralfs 1848. - (26 Jul 2018) - M.D. Guiry

General environment
