Nomenclatural notes
Several authors, including Hustedt (1930: 84), give the authorities for this species as "(Dillwyn) C.A. Agardh", which is incorrect as C.Agardh (1824: 8-9) introduced a a new name, Melosira discigera for Dillwyn's Conferva nummuloides. C,Agardh (1824: 8) included in synonymy Conferva nummuloides sensu Smith (English Botany, pl. 2287 with a question mark), Fragilaria nummuloides sensu Lyngbye (1809: pl. 63) and Conferva moniliformis "Jurg. Dec. 1" which appears to be an unpublished name.

General environment
This is a marine species.
