Sister taxa: R. laingii, R. hollandicus, R. orbiculatus, R. planus, R. undosus, R. sp.,

Distinguishing features: Radiolithus 10-16 wall-elements and low wall


Taxonomy:

Citation: Radiolithus hollandicus Varol, 1992
Rank: Species

Farinacci & Howe catalog pages: Radiolithus hollandicus *

Distinguishing features: Radiolithus 10-16 wall-elements and low wall


Morphology remarks: Although the number of elements in each cycle of the wall varies between ten and sixteen, the specimens with ten to twelve elements are the most common. R. hollandicus is distinguished from R . laingii by having a low wall (< 4 µm) and much narrower wall elements which are weakly birefringent under cross-polarised light. (Varol 1992)

Geological Range:
Notes: Slightly variable stratigraphic ranges have been reported: Albian (Varol, 1992); upper Albian (Jeremiah, 1996, 2001); Aptian-Cenomanian (Bown et al., 1998; Burnett, 1998).
Last occurrence (top): within UC1d (-Ma, top in "Holocene" stage). Data source: Burnett 1998
First occurrence (base): within Albian Stage (100.50-112.95Ma, base in Albian stage). Data source: PRB nannotax entry
