Staurolithites stradneri


Classification: Mesozoic -> Eiffellithales -> Chiastozygaceae -> Staurolithites -> Staurolithites stradneri
Sister taxa: S. crux, S. dibrachiatus, S. stradneri, S. dentatus, S. eiffellithoides, S. flavus, S. halfanii, S. minutus, S. ngurumahambaensis, S. quadriarcullus, S. siesseri, S. coroniformis, S. gausorhethium, S. leptostaurus, S. dorfii, S. handleyi, S. imbricatus, S. laffittei, > >>

Distinguishing features: Small Staurolithites with narrow rim and wide central area spanned by narrow cross bars.


Taxonomy:

Citation: Staurolithites stradneri (Rood et al., 1971) Bown in Bown & Cooper, 1998
Rank: Species
Basionym: Vekshinella stradneri Rood et al., 1971
Synonyms: The name S. stradneri was recommended by Thierstein (1973) as an  alternative to S. crux - which is based on a holotype from the Eocene. However both names are now in use. It is not clear how authors distinguish them.

Farinacci & Howe catalog pages: Vekshinella stradneri *

Distinguishing features: Small Staurolithites with narrow rim and wide central area spanned by narrow cross bars.


Morphology remarks: Simple, generalized morphology. Can co-occur with S. quadriarcullus and is similar in size but lacks the open spine-base.
