According to Calado (2011: 647), Schmarda's drawings suggest a species of Opisthoaulax but neither a sulcus nor a sulcal flagellum was seen, and its identity cannot be reliably ascertained. - (14 Dec 2011) - Wendy Guiry
Calado & Moestrup (2005: 117) note that although reported from an area of saline lakes ('Natron Seen'), this organism was originally found with other freshwater organisms in a temporary pond left after a flood of the Nile. - (14 Dec 2011) - Wendy Guiry
This is a freshwater species.
