Taxonomy:

Citation: Calciosolenia aperta (Hay & Mohler, 1967) Bown, 2005
taxonomic rank: Species
Basionym: Scapholithus apertus Hay & Mohler, 1967
Synonyms: Scapholithus rhombiformis Hay & Mohler 1967 [cf. Bown 2005. These appear to be proximal views of the same species]

Distinguishing features:
Parent taxon (Calciosolenia): Coccosphere with rhombic muroliths with central area floored by transverse laths (scapholiths); varimorphic or dimorphic.
This taxon: Broad, rhomboidal scapholith with broad flaring rim and central area spanned by transverse bars and thick, distal longitudinal bar.
