We investigated a previously unidentified subaerial corticolous strain of the genus Elliptochloris Tschermak-Woess. The alga shares the generic morphological characters with Elliptochloris bilobata, the type species of the genus, but it has a thicker cell wall of adult globular cells, different chloroplast structure and it also differs in shape of elliptical autospores. The differences of the autospore shape between both species were evaluated using landmark-based geometric morphometrics. The… CONTINUE READING
