Nomenclatural notes
Illegitimate: priority for Glenodinium inaequale Schmarda, 1854. - (10 Oct 2014) - M.D. Guiry

Taxonomic notes
Moestrup & Calado (2018: 469) note "Cells with the anterior portion longer and wider than the posterior. Cell length 20 µm, width 14-16 µm. Sulcus restricted to the posterior portion. Numerous yellowish- or golden-brown chloroplasts. An apical pore is mentioned in the description and illustrated in a drawing that shows a distinct, relatively thick cell cover. The available features point to a Parvodinium species, but the lack of information on plates impedes identification." - (30 Jan 2015) - Wendy Guiry
