Nomenclatural notes
Invalid: no description. On p. 97 of Lange-Bertalot & Krammer (1988), Nitzschia liebetruthii var. major Grunow is given as a variety of Nitzschia liebetruthii, but on p. 594, the name "Nitzschia hadriatica Lange-Bertalot nov. stat. nov. nom." is introduced for Nitzschia liebetruthii var. major Grunow in Cleve & Möller which is validated on the same page with a Latin diagnosis. As both taxa are based on the same type, both are apparently invalid. - (10 Feb 2020) - M.D. Guiry
