Uncertain affinities. Calado & Moestrup (2005: 117) note that Lindemann (1928b: 71) later transferred the species to a new genus, Lissaiella Er. Lindemann. Moestrup & Calado (2018: 468) "An egg-shaped organism with a short conical point. A transverse furrow is present near one end. There is no information about sulcus, flagella or internal parts. Dimensions ca. 25 × 20 %u03BCm. In slightly salty water, Bentschener See, Poland. The identity of this taxon can hardly be determined."

General environment
This is a brackish species.
