Additional information / Summary

Möglicherweise Hydrokenomikrolith. Der Bariomikrolith von Hogarth (1977) und der Rijkeboerit von van der Veen (1963) enhalten zu wenig Barum um den Namen zu tragen. Der Bariomikrolith welcher von Beurlen et al. (2005) untersucht wurde ist möglicherweise auch Hydrokenomikrolith.
