Citation: Pemma? P. uncinata Bown & Dunkley Jones, 2006
Rank: Species

Distinguishing features: Large (typically >7 µm), triangular-, rectangular- or rhomb-shaped nannoliths, which are thickened along two sides (‘base’ and ‘side’) to give a hook-shaped appearance. Dark in XPL but birefringent where thickened; c-axis orientation is parallel with the long axis.
