Melosira baikalensis (K. Meyer) Wislouche in INA but K. Meyer is crossed out and "nov, sp" is inserted in note. Often attributed to K.I.Meyer and spelled "baicalensis". The name was introduced in Wislouch as "nov. sp." and spelled "baikalensis". According to a note in INA "author had heard about K. Meyer's M. baikalensis from Baikal Lake; could not find any publ. and does not know if it is the same diatom or not." Thus this is a name nomenclaturally independent of Melosira islandica var. baicalensis K.I.Meyer. - (10 Apr 2014) - Wendy Guiry
