Status of name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.
Type locality: Hobsons Bay, Victoria, Australia (Hill & Wetherbee 1988: 359). Holotype: Fig. 1: (Hill & Wetherbee 1988: 359). Notes: Holotype: from culture 'MUCC Cr 47'; isolated in March 1984.
Hill & Wetherbee (1988: 359) note that this was described previously as 'Chroomonas nana Butcher' (1967), a later homonym of Chroomonas nana Schiller (1957) and that also, Butcher did not designate a type for his material, nor is there a permanent collection. - (31 Aug 2012) - Wendy Guiry
