Citation: Watznaueria cynthae Worsley, 1971
Rank: Species

Farinacci & Howe catalog pages: Watznaueria cynthae *

Distinguishing features: Broadly elliptical with two variably developed central pores that pierce the inner cycle.


Morphology remarks: These coccoliths resemble Watznaueria biporta Bukry, 1969, but are more subcircular in outline and do not routinely display clear pores.
