Abstract
    Examination of type material showed that 8 taxa must be reduced to synonomy with Thalassiosira punctigera (Castr.) comb. nov., an extremely variable species as to size and valve structure. Preliminary experiments indicated a certain relationship between the areola size and the temperature at which clonal cultures had been grown. While previously known from the North Pacific and South Atlantic Oceans in addition to a single record from the Caribbean Sea it has since 1979 been recorded regularly in the Skagerrak (between Denmark and Norway).
