Classification: non_cocco
Sister taxa:

Daughter taxa: (blue => in age window 0-800Ma) Granddaughter taxa

Typically spherically-radiate calcite bodies, formed of largish tapering, radiate elements with radial c-axes. Larger and less regularly-shaped than typical nannofossils.

Notes & discussion: The main purpose of these pages is to enable coccolithophore specialists to identify other organisms they find in their preparations. We hope to develop fairly comprehensive coverage of non-calcifying Haptophytes and biomineralising organisms in the nannoplankton size range - e.g. calcareous dinoflagellates, silicoflagellates, and Parmales. Other groups will just be covered enough to allow users to know where to go for more detailed identification.
