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.

Hi Jeremy

I'm not sure what's going on with this species (or two species) - it currently says the current identification/main database is Discoaster pentaradiatus Tan, 1927 which must be incorrect??



Jeremy Young (UK)

Yes - a mess indeed. Thanks for pointing that out, I think I have sorted it out now. There are three(!) species involved - D. stradneri Noel 1960 (a variant of D. binodosus); D. stradneri Martini 1961 (a homonym so invalid but interpreted as a synonym of D. elegans) and D. stradneri Borsetti & Cati 1970 (a homonym so invalid but interpreted as a synonym of D. pentaradiatus)
