Mougeotia (Zygnemaceae, Streptophyta) in Australia

Stephen Skinner, Timothy John Entwisle

Abstract


Thirteen taxa in the genus Mougeotia are described here for the Australian flora, and their distributions delineated. Many are new reports of taxa found in other parts of the world; some are reinstatements of previously reported species, like M. nummularioides, M. viridis and M. capucina, while there are three new varieties, M. laetevirens var. trochleifera, M. drouetii var. djelkiensis and M. tumidula var. palmerstoniana. This brings the verified species count for the continent to eighteen.
