Cosmarium luxuriosum var. papilliforme D.B. Williamson & C. Johnson

The habitat is the same as for the nominate variety. The original find and subsequent finds have all come from the same geographical area and within a few hundred metres of each other. The 'By Loch Druim na h-Imrich' sample had several cells of the nominate variety but only a single cell with the papillae was found.
