Abstract

Syncrypta glomerifera, a species originally isolated and described from a salt marsh pool in England has been recorded from brackish water in several samples from the Baltic Sea along the Finnish coast, and also from a Danish locality. Both colonial and monad forms have been studied with LM and TEM. The systematic position of the species is discussed and the new genus Lepidochrysis gen. nov. is established.
