Original descriptions of taxa. For coccolithophores, and many calcispheres, these are pages from the Farinacci & Howe Catalog of Calcareous Nannofossils. In other cases (e.g. non-calcifying haptophytes) the data is directly compiled on this site. The "Catalogue of Calcareous Nannofossils" was originally compiled by Prof A. Farinacci 1969-1989, since 2000 it has been updated and extended by Richard Howe - see The Farinacci and Howe Catalog - an Introduction.

Original Description

Ce genre est défini par une coque régulièrement allongée en navette, dont les extrémités très étirées sont le résultat d'une diminution des scapholithes en taille et en nombre. Les scapholithes au moment de leur formation ont un fond inorganisé, tandis qu'avec la maturité cellulaire le fond s'organise en une structure définie du type « scalae ».

Translation (JRY - 2019)
This genus is characterised by a shell that is reguarly elongated in a shuttle-shape, the extremities of which are very extended as a result of a diminution of the scapholiths in size and number. The scapholiths at the moment of their formation have a unorganised base, whilst with maturity of the cell the base becomes organised into a definite structure of the ladder type. [NB scalae is the plural of the latin word scala - ladder]

Extra details from original publication
Ce nouveau genre est proche d'Anoplosolenia, cependant il s'en différencie par l'allure de sa coque et par l'élaboration spéciale de ses scapholithes.

Translation: This new genus is close to Anoplosolenia, however it is differentiated by the appearance of the shell and by the special structure of its scapholiths
