Lepocinclis ovum var. butschlii (Lemm.) Conrad (ref. ID; 4492, 4950)
Syn; Lepocinclis butschlii Lemm. (ref. ID; 4950)
Description; Cell 32-35 um long, 17-19 um diam., ellipsoid. Posterior end tapering into a typically enlarged in its base, straight and pointed cauda (3-4 um long). Pellicle with striae helicoidal to the left clearly differentiated and coloured in optical view (7-8 strips in 10 um). When it was observed by SEM we could distinguish clearly alternating two types of strips, one more prominent than the other, which is covered by a special material. This different pattern disappears in the area around the flagellar pore. Cosmopolitan. (ref. ID; 4492)

Description; Cell 13-15 um long, 8-10 um diam. This new variety presented the same characteristics as the species. They differ from the type by the anterior end which has a remarkable lateral depression where the flagellar pore is located. The posterior end tapers abruptly into a short strong conical cauda, 1.5-2 um long. Pellicle helicoidally striated to the left (13-14 strips in 10 um), which are clearly distinguished up to the tip.

Cell 10-15.5 um long, 12-14 um diam., globose. Apical end flattened to slightly rounded, with flagellar pore located in a central depression or in a small prominence. Posterior end with or without a very short conical cauda. Pellicle helicoidally striated to the left (10-13 strips in 10 um). In some studied specimens, we could distinguish clearly alternating two types of strips, one more prominent than the other, which is covered by an special material. Cosmopolitan. (ref. ID; 4492)

Description; Cell 29-32 um long, 16-19 um diam., with contour ovoid to rounded. The posterior end tapers abruptly to a straight pointed long cauda (8-9 um long). Pellicle helicoidally striated to the left (7-8 strips in 10 um). This variety was originally reported in materials from France, this is the only other record of it in the world. (ref. ID; 4492)
