- Dingley, M., 2002. Desmids (Chlorophyta) recorded from wet rocks in Australia. — Algological Studies 105: 87-94.
In gelatinous matter adhering to wet rocks in Australia (NSW) some 30 desmid species were encountered, belonging to 11 different genera. In view of the extremity of the habitat in question (subaëral) it is an amazingly high number of taxa. Illustrated with drawings of some of the species collected.

Extensive and sound taxonomic treatment of a taxon presented in Ruzicka’s (1977) flora as Closterium cornu var. lundellii. Particularly on account of the shape of its zygospore it is concluded that the variety in question deserves the status of a separate species: Closterium lundellii Lagerh. 1883.
