No Latin description. " In view of these important discoveries [canal system and scales on the body] it appears that the Prasinophyceae must be regarded as a group differing from those in the Chlorophytina (e.g. the Volvocalean series is without reservoir and scales) and the evidence points to the status of a subdivision for this group--the Prasinophytina."
