No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.
This is a marine species.
Type locality: Carpathians:valley of the Orava: Ostrá Skala near Doln [Dolni Kubin]: Kubin (Eocene, Lutetian) (Silva 1996-to date). Type: Dmitri Andrissov; [not in PC*] plaque no.4451 (Silva 1996-to date Notes: According to Aguirre et al. (2012:321), Lemoine based the protologue primarily on material from the western Carpathian Mountains but also mentioned that the Carpathian material belonged to the same species as material found in Donzacq , Landes, SW France (unpublished). Lemoine did not designate a holotype and thus, nomenclaturally, the Carpathian specimen and the Donzacq specimen are considered syntypes. The Carpathian syntype has not been found in PC* and its whereabouts is unknown. The French syntype has been found in PC but Aguirre et al. have decided not to designate a lectotype because the Carpathian specimen might still be found and the French specimen is very poorly preserved.
According to Aguirre et al. (2012), this is a taxon of uncertain family and genus placement. - (4 Oct 2012) - Wendy Guiry
