The genus is Lepiseodina. Th
The genus is Lepiseodina. The species is probably L. superba (Banks) or L. conspicua (del Rosario). Cant tell without seeing it under a microscope. Some consider Lepiseodina a synonym of Clogmia, and you can probably see why. There are superficial similarities, and the two are close relatives.
