Cosmarium botrytis var. gemmiferum  (Brébisson) Nordstedt

Rather similar to the nominate variety but having slightly less granules visible along the semicell sides and a broader isthmus. Found in slightly acidic to slightly alkaline waters, in the plankton and marginal vegetation of lochs, and from ephemeral pools.
