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.

Citation: Corollithion Stradner 1961
Rank: Genus
Type species: Corollithion exiguum Stradner (1961)
Farinacci catalog page (& compiler): 3116
Language: DE

Translation of diagnosis: Flat radial calcareous-body of hexagonal outline with six openings lying in the direction of the diagonals. The hub-like central part from which the spokes go off, bears a short distally projecting stalk. The edge of the calcareous-body is inclined, so the proximal diameter is smaller than the distal.
