Pseudodifflugia gracilis Schlumberger, 1845

Diagnosis: the original description is “Animal à têt brun-bleuâtre, encroûté et comme recouvert de petits grains de sable, ovoïde, plus ou moins allongé ou raccourci; expansions filiformes très longues.” (= Animal test brown-bluish, encrusted and covered with small sand grains, ovoid, more or less elongated, with very long filipods)

This short description is without any images.

Dimensions: 35-56 µm long, 29-35 µm broad (Schlumberger)

Ecology: streams around Mulhouse

Remarks: Though some authors mention this species, it needs a re-diagnosis. It is impossible to identify any amoeboid based on this description.
