Comments Nomenclatural synonym of Odontella Agardh 1832. Denticella mentionned p. 210 in section called "Nachtrag zur Gattung Isthmia". Ehrenberg says: "I label Diatoma auritum as Denticella aurita because of its close relationship with Isthmia and its serrated shell...etc." Latin description also given by Ehrenberg. Accepted by Farr et al. 1979 as validly published.
