If we consider the lattice of local clones containing Aut(G), then it is easy to see that a clone C is an atom in this lattice iff there exists a minimal operation f on G such that C is the smallest local clone containing the set {f } ∪ Aut(G); we then say that C is the local clone generated by {f } over Aut(G).
