Taxonomic notes
Uncertain affinities (Calado & Moestrup, 2005). Moestrup & Calado (2018: 124-5) note, "Gymnodinium aestivale Skvortsov (1968, p, 86, pl. I, fig. 11), described from Manchuria, may be the same species. Skvortsov's drawing is reminiscent of Gymnodinium rarum, showing an epicone much smaller than the hypocone. However, his description does not agree with his figure, as he states that epi- and hypocone are of almost the same size." - (17 Oct 2018) - M.D. Guiry
