Moestrup & Calado (2018: 469) note "Although it was made the type of a new genus, Glenoaulax Diesing (1866, pp 305, 382), the name was hardly ever used and is absent from twentieth century floras. The original description of a smooth wall, the broadly rounded cell shape and the prominent eyespot suggest a woloszynskioid. However, the lack of detailed information about the organism advises against an attempt to identify it with any currently recognized species. Labelling it a nomen inquirendum and avoiding its use will prevent name changes that are difficult to justify, and it appears to be the best option." - (28 Aug 2020) - M.D. Guiry
