Pillai, C Thankappan and Gopinathan, C P (1973) A note on the wing variation of the diatom Planktoniella sol (Wallich) Schutt. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 15 (2). pp. 869-870.
In this note, a rare phenomenon of the wing variation of the diatom Planktoniella sol (Wallich) Schutt is described. This diatom exhibits widely differing wing structures which could lead to a mistaken identity. Although a few of this variations have been recorded before, and have been interpreted as developmental stages; some hitherto unrecorded forms are also present in this note. It is suggested that some ecological factors may be responsible for bringing out these variations.
