Uncertain affinities (Calado & Moestrup, 2005). "There is no figure marked 65 in pl. 6 of Skvortsov (1958), but it is probably the unnumbered illustration between figs 46 and 52 (see Calado & Moestrup 2005). This exceptional flagellate with green chloroplasts is very distinct and is perhaps identifiable because of its snout. It bears little similarity to any dinoflagellate." (Moestrup & Calado 2018: 467).
This is a freshwater species.
