Conferva antillarum Kützing

Conferva antillarum Kützing, 1847a: 167 (type locality: Trinidad).—Martens 1871a: 172.— Prain, 1905: 329.

Note: Martens (repeated by Prain) reported this species from salt lakes in India, but the type collection is from a freshwater habitat on the Caribbean Island of Trinidad. There appears to be no subsequent information on this species. Kützing's illustration (1853: pl. 45: fig. II) suggests that it may be representative of Microspora Thuret.
