Taxonomic status: currently recognized as a distinct genus.

Gender: This genus name is currently treated as masculine.

Most recent taxonomic treatment adopted: Hasle, G.R. & Syvertsen, E.E. (1996). Marine diatoms. In: Identifying Marine Phytoplankton. (Tomas, C.R. Eds), pp. 5-385. San Diego: Academic Press.

Nomenclatural notes
Two species were included in the original publication (p. 200): C. dichaeta and C. tetrachaeta, no type was designated. - (13 Jan 2007) - Wendy Guiry

Initially considered feminine (Ehrenberg 1844), then neuter and then masculine (Van Landingham 1968). The genus is treated as masculine here, as are all genera with the suffix "-ceros". In accordance with the Code, genera with the suffix "-ceras" are, however, treated as neuter. - (9 Sep 2012) - M.D. Guiry

Description: Generally colonial bipolar centric diatoms. Forms cylindrical cells with an oval or circular base that contain 1, 2 or more chloroplasts. The chloroplasts appear to be quadrangular in cingular view and elliptic or circular in valve view. The mantle is vertical and the cingulum is more or less developed. Processes, called setae, that are of varying thickness emerge from each apex. In the colonial species the terminal setae, those emerging from the last valve in the colony, are distinguished from intercalary setae, those of the internal valves that cross each other and/or fuse at some point, allowing the formation colonies of differing lengths. Specialised intercalary setae are found in some species (C. compressus , C. diversus , C. messanensis), which are different in size and shape from the other setae in the colony. An aperture that varies in size and shape and is delimited by the valve faces and the proximal part of the setae separates the cells of a colony. The valve surface generally has radial costae originating from a central hyaline\transparent annulus. The rimoportula, when present, is located centrally or subcentrally, usually with a short external tube. In the cingulum, the intercalary bands and the pleurae are of the open or segmented type. The setae have a variable ornamentation, often consisting of rows of spines or pores of different sizes.

Verification of data
Users are responsible for verifying the accuracy of information before use, as noted on the website Content page.

Some of the descriptions included in AlgaeBase were originally from the unpublished Encyclopedia of Algal Genera, organised in the 1990s by Dr Bruce Parker on behalf of the Phycological Society of America (PSA) and intended to be published in CD format. These AlgaeBase descriptions are now being continually updated, and each current contributor is identified above. The PSA and AlgaeBase warmly acknowledge the generosity of all past and present contributors and particularly the work of Dr Parker.

Descriptions of chrysophyte genera were subsequently published in J. Kristiansen & H.R. Preisig (eds.). 2001. Encyclopedia of Chrysophyte Genera. Bibliotheca Phycologica 110: 1-260.
