Classification This genus was placed by these authorities in the family Lophodiniidae but according to Algaebase this genus is replaced to the family Gymnodiniaceae. [details]

Publication date Fott, 1857 [details]

Validity Recent SEM of several other estuarine dinoflagellates (5-10 µm), which would be characterized as Gymnodinium or Katodinium by light microscopy, reveals that they are armored and have plate patterns and tabulations fitting the Peridiniales, but they lack scales. At least some Katodinium are probably armored. Until the type species is studied in more detail, the placement of Katodinium is in question. [details]
