Taxonomic status: currently regarded as a synonym of Eunotia.
Three species were included by Wallroth, viz, T. pectinale, T. striatulum, T. hyemale), but no type was originally designated, Round, Crawford and Mann give the first of them T. pectinale as the type. This may not be in accordance with ICBN rules as it may be a "mechanical" selection. - (27 Apr 2011) - M.D. Guiry
