Electron microscopic study of several populations of Stephanodiscus invisitatusHohn et Hellerman and S. costatilimbusKobayasi et Kobayashi revealed a great deal of variation in their valve structure elements. Analyses of the morphological characteristics of the two species are very similar, therefore we considered the latter a synonym for S. invisitatus. While studying the valve morphology of several populations of S. invisitatus we found a clearly distinguishable taxon, which we described as S. invisitatus f. hakanssoniae.
