Comments Type by monotypy. The genus name was introduced with an illustration by A. Grunow in H. Van Heurck 1881, pl. 45, fig. 43 (ref. 001035). Although the genus was at that time monotypic, the species included, Synedra cymbelliformis Schmidt 1874 had been previously published, and a generic description was therefore required for valid publication of the genus name (see ICBN Art. 42.1-b). Validating description in Van Heurck 1885, p. 157 (ref. 001040).
