Tubodiscus bellii


Classification: Mesozoic -> Podorhabdales -> Tubodiscaceae -> Tubodiscus -> Tubodiscus bellii
Sister taxa: T. bellii, T. burnettiae, T. frankiae, T. jurapelagicus, T. verenae, T. sp.,

Distinguishing features: Medium sized (5-7 µm) with narrow shields / wide central area. In xpl the inner rim cycle is usually slightly narrower than the outer rim cycle


Taxonomy:

Citation: Tubodiscus bellii Bown, 2005
Rank: Species

Farinacci & Howe catalog pages: T. bellii *

Distinguishing features: Medium sized (5-7 µm) with narrow shields / wide central area. In xpl the inner rim cycle is usually slightly narrower than the outer rim cycle


Morphology remarks: Medium sized (5-7 µm) Tubodiscus with narrow shields and wide, open, central area. The rim image is bicyclic in XPL and the two cycles have contrasting birefringence, the inner cycle being distinctly bright. The inner cycle is usually slightly narrower than the outer.

The shields and individual cycles are narrower than those of other tubodiscids.
