Coscinodiscus commutatus Grunow 1884, p. 27 (79)
CommentsThe description, if any is very minimal. If this name is considered invalid for the lack of a description, Coscinodiscus jonesianus var. commutata Hustedt 1928 (ref. 000500) is to be considered the oldest valid name for this taxon, as Hustedt provides an extensive description and an illustration.
