Lesquereusia minor
L. minor, after Walton, 1930

Lesquereusia minor Walton, 1930

Diagnosis: Test an excessively fine and very transparent more or less flexible membrane, which is indistinguishable from the cytoplasm. This test has a laterally placed neck and presents the characteristic view of Lesquereusia. There are two contractile vacuoles.

Dimensions: Walton: Length 55 µm; width 48 µm.

Ecology: Freshwater. Ohio, USA.

Remarks: Thomas et Gauthier-Lièvre: ‘Walton indicates that this species is devoid of any covering and is therefore absolutely hyaline; he compares it to the membrane of Cochliopodium. It would be desirable that this species be reviewed and studied with modern means of investigation; If she was good and is consistent with the description of its author, it would represent a species rather than a genre to be placed parallel to the Lesquereusia.
