Comments Type by original designation. Entered in Van Heurck 1896 (ref. 000897) p. 332 as Grunoviella H.V.H., 1892, Gen. Nov. Only one species is illustrated and described on p. 332: Grunoviella gemmata (Gr.) Van Heurck (= Sceptroneis? gemmata Gr.), however, on the same page Van Heurck says: "I include in the same genus Sceptroneis marina (Greg) Grun. (H.V.H. Atl., pl. 37, fig. 2)" (this species is also illustrated on pl. 30, fig. 845, as Sceptroneis marina). G. gemmata is designated by Van Heurck as the type by the following statement (p. 332): "I dedicate this genus to my excellent friend....Mr. Grunow, who has described the type-form."
