Classification: Coccolithophores -> Isochrysidales -> Noelaerhabdaceae -> Reticulofenestra -> R. parvula group
Sister taxa: C. floridanus group, R. bisecta group, R. lockeri group, R. parvula group, R. pseudoumbilicus group, R. reticulata group, R. umbilicus group, R. sp.,
Citation: R. parvula groupRank: species groupNotes & discussion: Small Reticulofenestra specimens are rare in the Quaternary so it is not sure how these modern species are related to fossil Reticulofenestra.
Distinguishing features: Extant Reticulofenestra species - all small

Plot of occurrence data:
- Range-bar - range as quoted above, pink interval top occurs in, green interval base occurs in.
- Triangles indicate an event for which a precise placement has been suggested
- Neptune data: this is a higher taxon page so Neptune data is not plotted. For the customisable plot option go to a genus page Parent: Reticulofenestra
