Taxonomy:

Citation: Pappomonas sp. type 3 Cros & Fortuño, 2002

Farinacci & Howe catalog pages:


Morphology remarks: NB The coccoliths of this species are similar to those of Papposphaera bourrellii, and Papposphaera sp. type 3 of Cros & Fortuño (2002). They differ essentially in having body coccoliths with a central node rather than a spine.

Size: Coccosphere 12-13 µm; BCs ca.1.0 µm long
