The currently accepted name for this genus is Entomoneis. Recent molecular studies using 18S rDNA and rbcL sequences (e.g. L.K. Medlin & I. Kaczmarska (2004) Phycologia 43: 245-270 for 18S rDNA; Mann et al., unpublished, for rbcL) show that there is no close phylogenetic link between Entomoneis and Nitzschia, in contrast to the suggestion made in my dissertation.
