As %u201Crotundum%u201D in the legend, p. 202. - (31 Aug 2020) - M.D. Guiry
Moestrup & Calado (2018: 471) note, "Cells described as ovoid or orbicular in ventral view, lightly compressed; epi- and hypovalve of equal length; cingulum spirals slightly to the left; sulcus distinct; chloroplasts brown ("brannea", probably a lapsus calami for brunnea), numerous; cysts embedded in mucilage; "membrana hyalina". Found in swamp near Harbin, Manchuria. The description of this species is very confused. What the lowermost of the two figures shows is uncertain. The species can never be reliably identified. The name should be considered a nomen inquirendum and its use discontinued." - (31 Aug 2020) - M.D. Guiry
