Staurodesmus cuspidicurvatus P.F.M. Coesel & Meesters
new name
European flora of the desmid genera Staurastrum and Staurodesmus: 22. 2013.
See Staurastrum curvatum W. West 1892
illegitimate: superfluous
[need for new name not explained; Staurastrum curvatum W. West has priority over Staurastrum curvatum W.B. Turner 1893 and in 2013 could have been transferred to Staurodesmus without replacement of epithet; but cf. Thomasson 1965 (Nova Acta Regiae Soc. Sci. Upsal., ser. 4, 19:) for possible complication; see also Teiling (Ark. Bot. 6: 467. 1967) and Coesel & Geist (Plant Ecology and Evolution 149: 102. 2015)]
