Taxonomic notes
John et al. (2004) cite Leathesia kuetzingii Hauck as a synonym of this species.

"Fletcher (1987: 146) based the description of Mycrocorine ocellata only on specimens held in some English Herbaria. However, only the smallest thalli illustrated in fig. 26/A correspond to Strömfelt's species, while all others appear significantly different from Strömfelt's species and could belong to a different taxon. In fact, specimens 1-2(-3) time forked illustrated in the same figure seem compressed (cylindrical or slightly club-shaped in Strömfelt's species). Moreover, assimilatory filaments illustrated in fig. 26 (D-E) are curved, 14-16 cells long with the proximal 2-3-4 cells cylindrical and the remaining elliptical, frequently asymmetrically swollen (straight or slightly curved, cylindrical or slightly club-shaped, with sub-cylindrical cells in Strömfelt's description)."
