Abstract

A planktonic and solitary diatom species superficially reminiscent of Nitzschia (subg. Nitzschiella) spp. has been found in marine samples from South America, central California waters, West Greenland and Denmark. Lennoxia faveolata gen. et sp. nov. is spindle-shaped with thin, extended and sometimes curved cell ends. The valve face pattern consists of a honeycomb mesh superimposed on a basal thin layer of material. A marginal structure reminiscent of a tubular process is present on at least one valve of each cell.
