Oricymba sagarensis (Gandhi) comb. nov., an endemic diatom from the Western Ghats, India Journal Article uri icon

Overview

abstract

  • Light and scanning electron microscope observations of Cymbella sagarensis Gandhi are presented. Morphological peculiarities of this species show that it belongs to the genus Oricymba J├╝ttner, Krammer, Cox, Van de Vijver & Tuji. Based on our observations, the new taxonomic combination, Oricymba sagarensis (Gandhi) C.Radhakrishnan, Kociolek & B.Karthick, comb. nov. is proposed. Morphological comparison of this species with other known members of Oricymba is given. A second taxon described by Gandhi, C. sagarensis f. gracilis Gandhi, is suggested to be a synonym of the nominate forma. Distribution of this species and other Oricymba taxa is discussed.
