Cyclopyxis maynei – from Kufferath, 1932

Cyclopyxis maynei Kufferath, 1932

Diagnosis: Test cylindrical, characterized by the size of the aperture, which is 87-97 μm wide while the cell diameter reaches 125-130 μm. The height of the test is about 80 μm.
Kufferath was unable to obtain the completely lateral view, but the appearance of the cell seen from three quarters indicated the box shape: the buccal opening is quite deep in the ventral surface. Test grayish in color, its surface has regular fine grains, numerous and patchy.

Dimensions: Diameter 125-130 μm; height 80 μm; pseudostome 87-97 μm.

Ecology: On leaves of Lonchites cuddodi.
