C. puteus var. golemanskyi, after Chardez, 1964

Cyclopyxis puteus var. golemanskyi  Chardez, 1964

Diagnosis:  Test hemispherical, similar to the type species, but of much smaller dimensions. The pseudostome, very characteristic, is placed at the end of a very conical, strongly invaginated tube. Test covered with polymorphous quartz elements.

Dimensions: Diameter 65-70 um (75 um, according to Golemansky).

Ecology: Tanganyika (South): About 5 km H. de Pepa, Symoens 4206 m. Golemansky described it from Guinea, but without naming it, he observed too few individuals.
