Detonula pumila syn Lauderia pumila, Schroederella delicatula, Thalassiosira condensata

It is sometimes difficult to separate D. pumila from its related species D. confervacea. From Hasle - a "single connecting thread from a strutted process in a central valve depression is usually conspicuous in D. pumila and less so in D. confervacea."
