May, L.. 1980 On the ecology of Notholca squamula Muller in Loch Leven, Kinross, Scotland. Hydrobiologia, 73 (1-3). 177-180. 10.1007/BF00019444Full text not available from this repository.
Notholca squamula was rarely found in Loch Leven when the water temperature rose above 10°C. Under favourable temperature conditions its abundance appeared to be closely related to that of Asterionella formosa. In the laboratory the animal was seen to feed on this diatom by breaking open the frustule and ingesting the cell contents.
