Steve skinner of the NSW Herbarium said "This appears, without measurements to be Closterium ehrenbergii, the Cl. malinversianum form or similar [I'm not a desmid expert!] Please remember that these determinations are done without microscopic examination on my part; I don't know any measurements, and there is often little reproductive information in the pictures. I also don't have precise locations or any water data.
