Moestrup & Calado (2018: 471) note, "Cells described as widely oval, with thin hyaline cover; length 39 µm, width 14 µm; epivalve broadly rounded, larger than the hypovalve; apex of the hypovalve very slightly pointed; cingulum wide; sulcus indistinct; somewhat compressed dorsally; chloroplasts brown, numerous, discoid; nucleus almost spherical, large, placed almost in the middle of the cell; eyespot absent. Found in swamp near Harbin, Manchuria. The description does not allow for identification of the species. Skvortsov (1968) mentions that the drawing was not related to the diagnosis, and changed the diagnosis (in English). We recommend to consider the name a nomen inquirendum and discourage its further use." - (31 Aug 2020) - M.D. Guiry
