Cosmarium hexalobum f. longum E.K. Kosinskaya

Kosinskaya (1933 from Russia) was the first to describe these longer and narrower cells of the nominate as forma longum. There have been a number since which have been provisionally corralled under this forma. Both the nominate and formae are rare arctic-alpine species.
