    Tectatodinium rugulatum (Hansen, 1977) McMinn, 1988, from the lower Danian of Denmark, is considered conspecific with, and a junior synonym of, the extant thermophilic species Tectatodinium pellitum Wall, 1967. However, the Danian material, based on holotype and topotype specimens, appears to show a degree of morphologic variability not seen in younger material. The accepted stratigraphic range base of Tectatodinium pellitum is now extended to the lower Danian, where this species appears to be a useful biostratigraphic marker in the Danish North Sea basin.
