Thalassiosira proschkinae Makarova 1979: 922, pl. 1: figs 1-7

Published in: Makarova, I.V., Genkal, S.I. & Kuzmin, G.V. (1979). [Species of the genus Thalassiosira Cl. (Bacillariophyta), found in continental water bodies of the USSR]. Botanicheskii Zhurnal 64(7): 921-927.

Type species
The type species (holotype) of the genus Thalassiosira is Thalassiosira nordenskioeldii Cleve.

Nomenclatural notes
" It is uncertain whether T. proschkinae and T. spinulata are conspecific because the valve structure of T. proschkinae has been variously described. We distinguish these species primarily by areola structure and silicification" (Park et al., 2016: 417). - (19 Aug 2016) - Wendy Guiry
