Nitzschia sect. Tryblionella

Partly on the basis of data analysed in the 1978 dissertation, and partly on the basis of further LM and SEM data, I later re-established the genus Tryblionella W. Smith (1853, Synopsis of British Diatomaceae, vol. 1, p. 35) for members of Nitzschia sect. Tryblionella. This was done in 1990 [in F.E. Round, R.M. Crawford & D.G. Mann (1990). The diatoms. Biology and morphology of the genera. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge: see pp 614-615 and 677-679), where we also made many new combinations. I have not yet published a detailed analysis elsewhere and so, as with Nitzschia sect. Panduriformes (= Psammodictyon), the dissertation text remains a significant document.
