"Gymnodinium lens Fott (1957, p. 286, 313, text-fig. 3, figs 5, 6), described from the Czech Republic, was said to differ in lacking visible amphiesmal plates when observed in the light microscope. In other respects it appears to be similar, and is probably identical to T. leopoliensis (cell length 34%u201335 µm, width 28%u201330 µm)." (Meostrup & Calado 2018: 381). - (26 Oct 2018) - M.D. Guiry
