Braarudosphaera perampla


Classification: Coccolithophores -> Braarudosphaerales -> Braarudosphaeraceae -> Braarudosphaera -> Braarudosphaera perampla
Sister taxa: B. bigelowii, B. insecta, B. magnei, B. pentagonica, B. perampla, B. perversus, B. sequela, B. stylifera, B. sp.,

Taxonomy:

Citation: Braarudosphaera perampla Bown 2010
Rank: Species

Distinguishing features: Large (>12µm) pentaliths with slightly rounded corners and convex upper surfaces

Farinacci & Howe catalog pages: Braarudosphaera perampla *


Morphology remarks: The convexity is due to the decreasing width of the constituent laminae. The laminae also change shape from stellate at the shortest width and most distal, to straight-edged at the maximum width

Size: 12-20µm
