Surirella clypeus (Ehrenberg) Kützing 1844, p. 59
Basionym?Cocconeis clypeus Ehrenberg
CommentsIt is suggested that this is a combination of a species previously described by Ehrenberg, but unclear which one. On the same page there is also Campylodiscus clypeus (Ehrenberg) Kützing, clearly a combination of Cocconeis clypeus Ehrenberg. Unclear what the basionym of S. clypeus is. Could also be treated as a new species.
