Cosmarium margaritatum (P. Lundell) J. Roy & Bisset 1886

Originally a variety of Cosmarium latum, Roy & Bisset (1886) raised this to species level with a rather sketchy description and drawing; later (1894) providing better clarification. A widespread species of mesotrophic, circumneutral waters, but never common.
