Original descriptions of taxa. For coccolithophores, and many calcispheres, these are pages from the Catalog of Calcareous Nannofossils. In other cases (e.g. non-calcifying haptophytes) the data is directly compiled on this site. The "Catalogue of Calcareous Nannofossils" was compiled by Prof A. Farinacci 1969-1989 and updated by Richard Howe 2000-2016 - see also this page.
Taxa are sorted alphabetically for simple browsing, or you can use search boxes at the top & bottom of the page

Notes
Coccolith resembles exothecal coccoliths of Syracosphaera corolla, but the description of the coccosphere is wrong, and improbably large (see also discussion in Kleijne 1993 - she also concludes this is not corolla).
