Taxonomic notes
Krammer (2000: 175) notes that Ehrenberg's figure does not represent the entity in question. Krammer also describes four morphotypes of the nominal variety. He also points out that the original description of Nitzsch is not to be clearly identified as this taxon and no type material is available. Nitzsch, for example, described a distom with green chloroplasts; the generally accepted concept of the species is that of Cleve (1895: 91). - (30 May 2016) - M.D. Guiry
