Lindavia intermedia has a less defined central area boundary, which extends from the center to about 1/3 of the radius. Lindavia intermedia has a lower stria density (11-13 in 10 ┬Ám). Lindavia radiosa has central areolae that are more radial. Furthermore, the central striae terminate before the alveolate region of the valve, leaving a hyaline border to the central area.
