Achnanthes ignota Hustedt in Schmidt et al. 1958, pl. 420, fig. 20-23
CommentsGerman (not Latin) description included in the plate explanation. Simonsen 1987, p. 453 (ref. 003164) notes that it would be superfluous to validate the name as “Hustedt described the same species twice, under two different names using the same specimens. Achnanthes ignota is identical with Achnanthes solea Hustedt 1953”.
