Basso here seems more likely to mean ripieno cello as opposed to concertino cello. Hypothesis: consider that "chamber music" in the early-middle Classical era was as likely to be performed by medium-sized string ensembles as by actual string quartets/quintets - Mozart brought his first few string quartets on tour (K.80 e.g.) with him for performance as string symphonies as-needed - and there was still an element of "concerto grosso" in them (so concertino cello, ripieno cello - though since no other sections are so subdivided- violins I/II doesn't count - hrm. ... ah well. Then again, an "unfigured [basso] continuo" is a contradiction in terms, and not loosely speaking, either. ("Basso continuo" = "continuous bass" uses figurations to provide harmony and bass precisely through such figurations.)
