Cosmarium regnellii var. pseudoregnellii  (Messikommer) Willi Krieger

Messikommer (1929) as Cosmarium braunii var. pseudoregnellii, found it in peat-cuttings in Switzerland. It was transferred to C. regnellii by Krieger (1944). Coesel (1979) also found and illustrated this species. Kouwets (in manuscript) is proposing to raise this variety to species level. Found in circumneutral, meso-oligotrophic waters.
