Observations

Contributor: Megan Otu | Sarah Spaulding - March 2011
Length Range: 18-28 µm
Width Range: 8-10 µm
Striae in 10 µm: 12-16

Description

Valves elliptically lanceolate with slightly rostrate apices. The raphe valve has an off-set “bow tie” shaped to oval central area. The rapheless valve has a large, broad central area, becoming more narrow toward the apices. The raphe is straight with expanded, unilaterally deflected proximal ends. The distal raphe ends are deflected to opposite sides of the valve. The striae are radiate on the raphe valve and slightly radiate on rapheless valve. The striae are multiseriate.
