Comments Automatic typification under Art. 7.5. Nomenclaturally superfluous. This name appears in a key to diatom genera, with the note: "ich setze lieber Clevamphora fur die Amphora sensu strict. of Cleve" ("I prefer to use Clevamphora for Amphora s.s of Cleve"). Cleve (1895, ref. 000949), p. 99, divides genus Amphora Ehr. in different subgroups, one of them is Amphora (with Amphora ovalis as the type). Farr et al. 1979 give Amphora Ehr. ex Kütz. as synonym (by lectotypification). Genus name is spelled Cleveamphora in Farr et al. 1979.
