Most recent taxonomic treatment adopted: Nakov, T., Guillory, W.X., Julius, M.L., Theriot, E.C. & Alverson, A.J. (2015). Towards a phylogenetic classification of species belonging to the diatom genus Cyclotella (Bacillariophyceae): Transfer of species formerly placed in Puncticulata, Handmannia, Pliocaenicus and Cyclotella to the genus Lindavia. Phytotaxa 217(3): 249-264.
"Typified with the type of the section. Comments: The name was first published as a section of Cyclotella (see Schütt, 1899, p. 220, ref. 001861), with a single species included, Cyclotella socialis Schütt 1899. Treated as a genus by De Toni & Forti (1900), who included Lindavia radiosa (Grunow) Schütt (= Cyclotella comta var. radiosa Grun. in Van Heurck). Cyclotella socialis is implicitly included by De Toni & Forti by citation of Schütt's section; being the type of the section, it is also the type of the genus."
