This name has been given by V. V. Matias and A. M. Bondareva to Li3PO4 occurring as a hydrothermal replacement of montebrasite in a Kola pegmatite according to an abstract by M. Fleischer. Over eight years ago the writer took an x-ray diffraction pattern of the synthetic powder of this material (see the table), suspecting that it would be present in his pegmatite collections, but it never turned up. This pattern agrees well with that by A. P. Denisov quoted in the Fleischer abstract.
