INA claims that this is illegitimate, claiming priority for Batrachospermum vagum var. tenuissimum C. Agardh 1817, but this is a variety, and Collins's name is specified as a forma. - (13 Feb 2012) - M.D. Guiry
Vis & Sheath (1999: 266) cite Batrachospermum vagum var. flagelliforme f. tenuissima Collins as the basionym of Sirodotia tenuissima (Collins) Skuja ex Flint 1948. - (27 Mar 2012) - Wendy Guiry
