Taxonomic notes
Frequently attributed to Kützing (1844, p. 80; pl. 6, fig. 16) who gives in synonymy: "Frustulia ventricosa [sensu] Kützing Syn. p. 11, fig. 7 - Frustulia et Cymbella ventricosa Ag.?" and this name is here attributed to C. Agardh (1827, as Frustrulia) and the basionym of Cymbella ventricosa (C.Agardh) C.Agardh, 1830. - (26 Mar 2014) - M.D. Guiry

Binomial also proposed by Pantocsek, 1913: 23; pl. I: fig. 14, but it was illegitimate: not Cymbella ventricosa (C. Agardh) C. Agardh 1830 (INA). - (13 Sep 2019) - Salvador Valenzuela Miranda
