Deposition date:before 1981
CULTURE INFORMATION
Culture medium:ESP Ag
Axenic:axenic
Strain relatives:UTEX 1769; former SAG 213-19
Agitation resistance:yes
Special properties:taxonomy unclear, strain may have to be renamed into non-authentic strain of Cc. oleofasciens Trainor et Bold, as 18S rRNA sequence (KM020100) is identical to Cc. oleofaciens acc. to Kawasaki et al. (2015), but as ITS structure and morphology of SAG 62.80 were not examined, authors did not synonymize. SAG 04/2019this study.
