Moestrup & Calado (2018: 468): "Cells described as broadly ellipsoid, 18 × 16 µm in size; epi- and hypocone of equal length, broadly rounded; slightly compressed dorsoventrally; with numerous small, discoid, brown chloroplasts, marginal eyespot and nucleus nearly central. Found in Manchuria, in the plankton. The diagnostic features of this species do not allow it to be identified with any degree of confidence. The name should be considered a nomen inquirendum and its use discontinued." - (28 Aug 2020) - M.D. Guiry
