    Matsuoka Okada 1989 pl11-04.; 15 and 19 JPG is typical R. hesslandii. Please see fig. 13 in Pujos, 1987 and Perch-Nielsen, 1985 pic 8 in fig. 60.

    Ines Galovic (Croatia)
    The second pic looks like Dictyococcites antarcticus (Farinacci catalog) i.e. D. productus (fig. 22 in Pujos, 1987).
    Ines Galovic (Croatia)
    I think it should be R. producta for smaller forms and R. perplexa for larger forms.
