Abstract
Microscope slides containing material from Sierra Leone used by Woodhead and Tweed to describe eight new Surirellaceae taxa in the mid-twentieth century were reinvestigated. Only two taxa were found on the original slides, Surirella approximata Woodhead & Tweed and S. engleri [var. constricta] f. minor Woodhead & Tweed. The valve variability of S. engleri O. Muller includes valves of S. engleri [var. constricta] f. minor which is now regarded as a synonym. As no holotypes were indicated by the authors, types are given here. Comments on S. rudis var. sierra-leonensis Woodhead & Tweed, S. rudis [var. sierra-leonensis] f. constricta Woodhead & Tweed and S. esamangensis Foged are also given. Valves resembling Stenopterobia recta Woodhead & Tweed, Surirella asperrima f. rokuprensis Woodhead & Tweed, S. engleri f. sierra-leonensis Woodhead & Tweed and S. rokuprensis Woodhead & Tweed could not be found on the Woodhead and Tweed original slides.
