Although accepted by many authors as having been published by Ralfs in 1845 in Jenner's Flora of Tunbridge Wells , p. 198, the introduction of the name Micrasterias oscitans was not accompanied by a description at this time. The species epithet was first validly published by Hassal (1845: 386, pl. 90. fig. ) as Holocystis oscitans Hassal.
This is a freshwater species.
