Tabellaria are araphid - possess no raphe - and are planktonic, or found amongst water plants. They form colonies either as chains, or as star shaped form with frustules attached all at one end in the centre. Tolerant of most water types. Flocculosa and fenestra are both freshwater species.
Tabellaria, species undetermined, and also flocculosa, found in diatomite deposit at Three Lakes, core TL5, at 3.6 to 3.7 m depth.
Tabellaria flocculosa or fenestra (?) in core TL1 at 5.95 m depth.
