Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomic remark The genus Spirodiscus has been synonymized with Nogrobs for a decade, however, the results of comparative SEM studies of tube wall ultrastructures (Kupriyanova & Ippolitov, 2015) show very different crystal arrangement in Spirodiscus and in the type species of genus Nogrobs, thus indicating that these genera should not be synonymised. [details]
