|Daughter taxa (time control age-window is: 0-800Ma)||Granddaughter taxa|
Heterococcoliths asymetric, arranged in meridional rows on coccosphere; V-unit forms flange, R-unit basal. Also nannolith phase "Polycrater" with quadrate aragonitic liths.
Narrow-rimmed muroliths, mostly with prominent central structures.
Placolith-like with distal shield much larger than proximal, predominantly formed from R-units, V-units vestigial.
|narrow rimmed placoliths|
Diverse group of coccoliths with narow placolith rims and variable central structures, usually showing four-fold symmetry.
