Moestrup & Calado (2018: 470) note, "Cells described as pyriform, laterally compressed, with epicone much larger than hypocone; cell length 148 µm, width 74 µm; chloroplasts brown; amphiesmal plates distinct, epicone with 5 plates "frontalis equatorialis", 1 medium and 1 apical plate; postcingular plates 4 and a single antapical; sulcus with apical (?) spine. Found in Manchuria. Skvortsov's illustrations of this very large, thecate dinoflagellate do not match his description. Reliable identification is not possible." - (31 Aug 2020) - M.D. Guiry
