Comments

After Young et al. 2003. Kleijne (1993) removed this species to a separate genus, Gaarderia. However, in the light of recognition of exothecal muroliths in other Syracosphaera species (Cros 2000) this separation seems inconsistent so Young et al. 2003 reverts to the older combination S. corolla.
