Distinguishing features: Very small, with ca. 12 lateral bars per side and longitudunal bar


Morphology remarks: Very small, broadly elliptical Stradnerlithus distinguished by having multiple lateral bars (12 each side in this specimen) extending from the rim and meeting at a longitudinal bar that extends for most of the length of the coccolith. Beyond the extent of the longitudinal bar, at the ends of the ellipse axis, the last three lateral bars abut one another, creating an ‘F’ pattern. This species bears a short spine.

Size: Length = 2.1 μm, width = 1.5 μm.
