Original descriptions of taxa. For coccolithophores, and many calcispheres, these are pages from the Catalog of Calcareous Nannofossils. In other cases (e.g. non-calcifying haptophytes) the data is directly compiled on this site. The "Catalogue of Calcareous Nannofossils" was compiled by Prof A. Farinacci 1969-1989 and updated by Richard Howe 2000-2016 - see also this page.
Taxa are sorted alphabetically for simple browsing, or you can use search boxes at the top & bottom of the page

Editors' Notes
Diagnosis ranslataton
A species of Staurolithites with an axial cross, which is aloms covered in the centre by a diagonal cross.
Description: The wall is made up like roof tiles superposed on slats. An axial cross fills most of the central area. In the middle of this cross four crystals form another, diagonally oriented cross. Views of the proximal side were not found.
Comments: S. floralis differs from other species of Staurolithites by the second, diagonally oriented cross in the central structure.
