Kokia stellata


Classification: Mesozoic -> Braarudosphaerales -> Other nannoliths with tangential c-axes -> Kokia -> Kokia stellata
Sister taxa: K. borealis, K. curvata, K. kayae, K. stellata, K. sp.,

Distinguishing features: Stellate, multiradiate, rosette-shaped nannolith constructed from 10-15 single crystal-unit rays joined for most of their length along curved sutures; low birefringence under XPL.


Taxonomy:

Citation: Kokia stellata Bown, 2005
Rank: Species

Distinguishing features: Stellate, multiradiate, rosette-shaped nannolith constructed from 10-15 single crystal-unit rays joined for most of their length along curved sutures; low birefringence under XPL.


Morphology remarks: Kokia borealis has fewer rays joined along straight sutures, and K. curvata has fewer rays that are overlapping.

Size: Diameter = 4.5-8.0 µm
