Subject: Monostroma bullosum

We are looking for live or preserved (preferably dried over silica gel)
material of the freshwater green algal species Monostroma bullosum (Roth,
1806) Thuret, 1854.

Monostroma bullosum is the currently-recognized lectotype species of the
genus Monostroma (Kornmann P, Helgol wiss Meeresunters 11: 13-21, 1964;
Bliding C, Bot Notiser 121: 535-629, 1968).  We have reason to believe that
Monostroma is polyphyletic even after species belonging to Gayralia and
Protomonostroma are removed from the genus (O'Kelly CJ et al., Phycologia
43: 41-49, 2004).  We would like to have specimens of M. bullosum (this
species, so far as we know, does not occur in the Americas) to test this

If you are able and willing to help us out, please drop Brian Wysor
([log in to unmask]) or myself a note.  Many thanks.
