Nomenclatural notes
Meister (1912: 57) cited Navicula ventricosa Ehrenberg, 1830, p. 67, a nomen nudum and thus an invalid name. It is not clear if Navicula ventricosa Ehrenberg, 1839, which is a valid name, is the name intended by Meister as Ehrenberg 1839 was describing a fossil from Oran. We have therefore treated Caloneis ventricosa F.Meister as a new name. - (22 Feb 2017) - M.D. Guiry
