amabile (Deflandre, 1939b, p.143, pl.6, fig.8) Sarjeant, 1969, p.12.  Emendation: Kunz, 1990, p.18-19, as Leptodinium amabile.  Holotype: Deflandre, 1939b, pl.6, fig.8; Jan du Chêne et al., 1986a, pl.69, figs.1-3.  Originally Gonyaulax (Appendix B), subsequently (and now) Leptodinium, thirdly Gonyaulacysta, fourthly Leptodinium?.  Lentin and Williams (1973, p.86) retained this species in Leptodinium.  Questionable assignment: Stover and Evitt (1978, p.171) as a problematic species - however, Kunz (1990, p.18) included the species in Leptodinium without question.  Age: Kimmeridgian.
