Scytonema castellii Wolle
Fresh-water Alg. U.S.: 255, pl. CLXXXIV: figs. 16-19. 1887. (E)
Type locality: USA
[Listed as "Scytonema castellii Mass.", but Wolle states "Whether this is strictly the same plant collected by Massalongo in Italy, may be questioned; it is very near it"; there is apparent confusion between the [devalidated] homotypic synonyms Symphyosiphon castellii Massalongo and Scytonema castellii (Massalongo) Rabenhorst; Scytonema castellii (p. 103) and Symphyosiphon castellii (p. 369) placed in synonymy of Calothrix castellii Bornet & Flahault (Ann. Sci. Nat., Bot. ser. 7, 3: 369. 1886); Massalongo specimen in PC chosen by Drouet (1973, p. 113) as LT of Symphyosiphon castellii]
