[The name of the honoree is erroneously spelled "Kitchell" throughout the paper in which this binomial is published. Harvey S. Kitchel was a son of Rev. Harvey Denison Kitchel (1812-1895), the fifth president of Middlebury College. F. Wolle (1892) in "Desmids of the United States and list of American pediastrums ...": "My acknowledgments would not be complete did I omit to mention the practical interest taken in my labors by the Rev. H.D. Kitchel, and his son, Mr. H.S. Kitchel." Nordstedt and West corrected the misspelling upon proposing new combinations.]
