Taxonomic notes
Moestrup & Calado (2018: 472, in reference to the basionym) note, "Cells described as nearly spherical with broadly rounded poles and very thin, hyaline cell cover ("membrana tenuissima"); slightly compressed dorsoventrally; chloroplasts green and discoid; eyespot not observed; flagella of equal length (?); cell length 26 µm, width 23 µm. Found in cold water swamp near Harbin, Manchuria. The cingulum was described as straight and indistinct though it is well-marked in the figure. The only information about the sulcus is that it is short. We consider the description to be inadequate for identification." - (31 Aug 2020) - M.D. Guiry
