Sellaphora wetzelii D. Metzeltin & H. Lange-Bertalot 2007, p. 237
as Sellaphora wetzelii (Hustedt) nov. comb.
CommentsThe basionym cited (Navicula wetzelii Hustedt in Schmidt et al. 1934) is invalid, so the name should be solely attributed to Metzeltin & Lange-Bertalot 2007, and treated as a nomen novum for the other synonym cited : Navicula deliberata Hustedt 1961 (valid). Sellaphora wetzelii may be illegitimate (unwarranted change of epithet)
