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

Hi! D. toralus, have any relationship with D. wisei?, and why you not include this fossil (D. wisei) in Nannotax? it is not an official nannofossil? In fact, dont have much information about this nannofossil.. why? Thanks.
