Glenodinium roseolum Schmarda
Type locality: Egypt: Monfalut (Silva 1996-to date). Type: 27 ii 1853; (Silva 1996-to date
Uncertain affinities; possibly related to Katodinium vorticella (F. Stein) Fott ex A.R. Loeblich (Calado & Moestrup, 2005).
According to Calado (2011: 647), Schmarda's drawings suggest a species of Opisthoaulax but neither a sulcus nor a sulcal flagellum was seen, and its identity cannot be reliably ascertained. - (14 Dec 2011) - Wendy Guiry
