Editors' Notes
There was no illustration of this species in Haeckel (1887)
Haeckel listed Cyrtophormis turrita under the subgeneric name Acanthocyrtis, but did not include the subgeneric name in the species name. This species is assigned to Acanthocyrtis (the junior homonym) Haeckel, 1887a (non Haeckel, 1881a).[comment from RadWorld database]
