Nannoconus elongatus


Classification: Mesozoic -> Braarudosphaerales -> Nannoconaceae -> Nannoconus -> N. truitti group -> Nannoconus elongatus
Sister taxa: N. cornuta, N. donnatensis, N. elongatus, N. inconspicuus, N. longus, N. minutus, N. multicadus, N. planus, N. quadriangulus, N. quadricanalis, N. truittii,

Distinguishing features: Tall and cylindrical (height ~2x width).


Daughter taxa: (blue => in age window 0-800Ma)


Taxonomy:

Citation: Nannoconus elongatus Brönnimann, 1955
Rank: Species

Farinacci & Howe catalog pages: Nannoconus elongatus *

Distinguishing features: Tall and cylindrical (height ~2x width).


Morphology remarks: Cylindrical nannoconids with wide central cavities, and walls formed from moderately high-angled (20-45 degrees), and moderately thick, cycles (0.5-1.0µm). The cavity is similar in width to that of the wall but is generally narrower than those of N. quadricanalis. The overall shape is more elongate than that of N. quadricanalis.

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within Campanian Stage (72.05-83.64Ma, top in Campanian stage). Data source: Burnett 1998
First occurrence (base): within Barremian Stage (126.30-130.77Ma, base in Barremian stage). Data source: Burnett 1998
