Comments Three species (A. pellucida, A. danica and A. rigida) are described in the original publication and no type is designated. Cleve 1894 (ref. 000232), p. 125 states "the genus Amphipleura was founded in 1844 by Kützing for Frustulia pellucida..". This statement can be taken as the lectotypification of the genus.
