Nomenclature. Misspelled as “ A. fussidens   ” by Matis & Tirjaková (1995), and thus unavailable according to the Articles 33.3 and 33.5 of the ICZN (1999).

Main morphological characters (according to Song & Wilbert 1989). Size 40–130 × 10–15 µm in vivo. Body lanceolate, anteriorly distinctly curved dorsally, posteriorly narrowly to broadly rounded. Two macronuclear nodules with a single micronucleus in between. Contractile vacuole ventral and distinctly subterminal. Extrusomes broadly fusiform, 4–6 µm long, few scattered in cytoplasm and 2–6 attached to anterior portion of oral bulge. Somatic ciliary pattern Litonotus   -like; about 8–14 right and 4–5 left kineties.

Distribution. Litonotus fusidens   was recorded in organic mud from activated sludge plants in the town of Bratislava ( Matis 1988); in the backwaters of the Danube River near the State Natural Reservation Čičov ( Matis & Tirjaková 1992); in the riverside zone of the Danube River near Čičov ( Tirjaková 1992 a); in the periphyton and benthos of the Turiec River ( Tirjaková 1993); in the main stream of the Morava River near Devín ( Matis & Tirjaková 1994); in the littoral zone of the Danube River and its through-flowing river arms near the hydroelectric power structures in Gabčíkovo ( Matis & Tirjaková 1995); in an oligotrophic stream in the National Nature Reserve Rozsutec, Malá Fatra Mts ( Tirjaková 1997 b); in the benthos from the Ružičkov prameň spring, High Tatra Mts ( Tirjaková 2001); in the benthos from the Stupavský potok brook ( Tirjaková 2003 b); in the benthos and plankton of a hypertrophic shallow water reservoir near the town of Modra ( Tirjaková 2010); in the sediment from the littoral zone of the upper Váh River near the villages of Stankovany and Hubová ( Tirjaková & Vďačný 2013 a).
