"Glenodinium muricatum Skuja is probably identical to T. coronata. It was described to lack an eyespot and to have the posterior edges of the sulcus projecting as two minute spines. It agrees in size, color, presence of red globules in the cell, position of nucleus and chloroplasts, and can hardly be distinguished from T. coronata." (Moestrup & Calado 2018: 375). - (26 Oct 2018) - M.D. Guiry
