Lepadella: Lepadellidae: Ploima: Pseudotrocha: Monogononta: Eurotatoria
Taxonomic / nomenclatural notes:
• not Lepadella minuta (Weber & Montet) after Koste & Tobias (1989) [Ref.17369], Lepadella minuta (Weber & Montet) after Wulfert (1965, f. africana) [Ref.17668] [identities unclear].
• Specimens figured under this name from arctic and high altitude environments (Pejler (1962: northern Swedish Lapland, as L. cf. minuta) [Ref.11691], De Smet & Bafort (1990: Klimanjaro) [Ref.12950]), Jersabek (1996: European Alps) [Ref.13778]), and records from Mongolian streams (Jersabek & Bolortsetseg, 2010) [Ref.18457] deviate by a more elongate lorica and relatively longer toes. Their conspecificity with L. minuta requires verification.
