Difflugia algaephila Decloitre, 1977

Diagnosis: Test ovoid, neatly pointed, with oblique round pseudostome.

Dimensions: Length 73-75 µm, width 60-65 µm, aperture 30-32 µm (n=20).

Ecology: Marine, between green algae along the beach, France.

Remarks: Decloitre (1977) gave a very short description. It could be a Difflugia, but also something else.
