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 complied 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
Possibly a enior synonym of Hughesius gizoensis - unofrtunately it is not really possible to tell from the type lillustration if this is a small C. pelagicus or H. gizoensis. So, the name is probably best ignored / assumed to be a synonym of C. pelagicus
