This paper presents physiological evidence for the existence as separate taxonomic entities of Chlorella saccharophila and C. ellipsoidea. C. saccharophila is able to utilize mannitol for growth in the dark, whereas C. ellipsoidea is unable to grow on mannitol. In addition, C. ellipsoidea is characterized by an extreme sensitivity towards cadmium. — Among the other Chlorella species, only C. luteoviridis is capable of growing on mannitol.
