taxa notes Nodularia spumigena is a filamentous, planktonic, photosynthetic, diazotrophic, bloom-forming cyanobacterium.It is usually found in salty or brackish waters. It is found in Lake Alexandrina, in the south-east of southern Australia. It is commonly found near the surface of the water because is has a high tolerance of ultraviolet radiation.
