Jahn & Kusber (2004: 582) comment "A similar taxon is Diploneis ovalis (Hilse) Cleve (Krammer & Lange-Bertalot 1986: t. 108, fig. 15). Because no original material of later described Diploneis taxa was consulted in this study, it can not be clarified here whether or not this new combination will replace any name in current use. - (27 Jan 2017) - M.D. Guiry
