Cosmarium bioculatiforme F.A.C. Kouwets

This is a proposed new name by Kouwets (in manuscript) but it will have no authenticity until published but I will leave it here for reference. He notes: 'This form had been previously listed and figured under C. cf bioculatum in Kouwets (2001). The open, acute-angled sinus is a key character. The author has kindly identified this proposed species for me
