Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorIdentification This is one of the many ostracod speceis poorly described and illustrated in the 19th Century. Its indetity is still uncertain, because no holotype or lectotype has been designated so far. Several authors have identified trachyleberidid spiny valves as C. melobesioides with distinct generic assignments (Apatihowella, Echinocythereis, Henryhowella, Trachyleberis). However a certain generic assignment for this species must await a lectotype designation.  [details]
