Editors' Notes
There was no illustration of this species in Haeckel (1887)
Haeckel listed Cycladophora lanterna under the subgeneric name Lampterium, but did not include the subgeneric name in the species name.

In the description the \two preceding species\" refers to Cycladophora goetheana and C. tetrapleura in Haeckel, 1887a."[comment from RadWorld database]
