Editors' Notes
Orders are outside the family group and so need separate authorship, hence the correct citation is Globigerinida Lankaster 1885.
The reference is usually cited as Lankaster (1885) in foraminiferal literature, but the author was Prof. E. R. Lankester of University College London, so he correct spelling is Lankester.
