Note: for strains where we have DNA barcodes we can be reasonably confident of identity, however for those not yet sequenced we rely on morphology and the original identification, usually made by the depositor. Although CCAP makes every effort to ensure the correct taxonomic identity of strains, we cannot guarantee that a strain is correctly identified at the species, genus or class levels. On this basis users are responsible for confirming the identity of the strain(s) they receive from us on arrival before starting experiments.
For strain taxonomy we generally use AlgaeBase for algae and Adl et al. (2019) for protists.

Notes filament with differentiated cells (akinete/heterocyst); Name changed to A. klebahnii Feb 2022 based on morphology. The sequence and ID of this strain is not conclusive, reflecting the ID uncertainties surrounding this genus. Aphanizomenon klebahnii is a synonym of Aphanizomenon flos-aquae var. klebahnii; LC-MS analysis by RGU in 2021 for cylindrospermopsins, microcystins and anatoxins: None Detected.
