Taxonomic notes
Chara batrachosperma sensu Reichenbach (Reichenbach 1830, 36, pl. 794) has been treated as a separate name by some authors even though Reichenbach gave Thullier as the authority. The reason for this is that Reichenbach illustrate a species different to that described by Thullier, which is referable to the entity currently known as Nitella confervacea (Brébisson) A.Braun ex Leonhardi (Gregor, Raabe & Van Raam 2012) - (28 Apr 2020) - M.D. Guiry

General environment
