Status Mapstone (2009) considered this species to be a junior synonym of Lensia hostile, based on literature available at the time. More recently Pugh notes that crenulations on the mouth plate are an important character distinguishing this species from all other Lensia species. It is, therefore, now considered to be a valid species of the genus Lensia; hopefully figures will soon be added to this website by Pugh which illustrate this new character. [details]
