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

Translation of original description (translated by Sarah-Jane Jacket for Mike Styzen): Triangular plate with six holes on both sides, the centre, forms a pillar supporting an appendix which has three forked branches, hollow below, and the axes are shifted 30° to the right relative to that of the plate: each branch has an extension to one of the vertices of the triangle and another branch towards the middle of each side of the triangle. In lateral view, it appears strongly curved and reminiscent of a cushion.
