Conferva fluviatilis Linnaeus
Type locality: "in Europae rivulis fluviisque pacatioribus"; (Linnaeus 1753: 1165) Lectotype (designated by Irvine in Spencer & al. 2009: 243; see below): OXF; (Spencer & al. 2009: 243) Notes: "Conferva fluviatilis L., Sp. Pl.: 1165. 1753 = Lemanea fluviatilis (L.) C. Agardh: Rhodophyceae - Lectotype (designated here by Irvine): [illustration in] Dillenius, Hist. Muse.: t. 7, f. 47. 1742. - Voucher: Herb. Dillenius (OXF) "Conferva fluviatilis lubrica setosa, Equiseti facie" (Spencer & al. eds 2009: 243). Turner (1804: 108) and Druce & Vines (1907: 190) determined the Herb. Dillenius material as C. fluviatilis and L. fluviatilis respectively. Silva (1952: 262) discussed the Historia Muscorum figure without selecting it as the type; he further (p. 272) commented that there was an authentically named specimen in LINN. The only relevant specimen is Herb. Linn. No. 1277.38 (LINN), but this is annotated only by F. Ehrhart and it is therefore not original material.'
This is a freshwater species.
