The two tests above came from the same sample. They are remarkable because of the very broad test. It resembles D. paranodosa, which is however more heart-shaped with a concave fundus.

This drawing was made by Van Essen (1968) after a test which he had found in the Netherlands. He labeled it “D. oblonga var. nodosa”. Compared with the specimens which I have found it’s rather small, 140 µm broad and 90 µm high and it strongly resembles D. paranodosa.
