Litonotus crystallinus— Tirjaková 1998: 16; Tirjaková 2003 b: 20; Tirjaková & Vďačný 2013 a: 670.

Main morphological characters (according to Foissner et al. 1995). Length 80–190 µm in vivo. Body lanceolate with narrowly rounded posterior body end; 3–5 ribs on left side. Two macronuclear nodules with a single micronucleus in between. Contractile vacuole subterminal; sometimes an additional vacuole in anterior body third. Extrusomes rod-like and slightly curved, about 6 µm long, attached along whole length of oral bulge and to posterior body end. Somatic ciliary pattern Litonotus -like; 5–8 right and 5–6 left kineties.

Distribution. This species was reported from the benthos of the Hron River tributaries ( Tirjaková 1998); from the benthos of the Stupavský potok brook ( Tirjaková 2003 b); from sediment in the littoral zone of the upper Váh River near the village of Stankovany ( Tirjaková & Vďačný 2013 a).
