|Classification and/or Status||Objective junior synonym of Echinodiscus Leske, 1778.|
|Remarks||First used in Leske (1778: p. 197) where the name "Echinoglycus irregularis" appears (only) as translation of Van Phelsum\'s "Onregelmatige Egelkoek" in the discussion of Echinodiscus bisperforatus. It thus has to be regarded as nomen nudum.
