Markalius inversus


Classification: ntax_cenozoic -> Mesozoic Survivors -> Markalius -> Markalius inversus
Sister taxa: M. apertus, M. inversus, M. latus, M. neuquenensis, M. walvisensis, M. sp.

Taxonomy:

Citation: Markalius inversus (Deflandre in Deflandre&Fert, 1954) Bramlette&Martini, 1964
taxonomic rank: Species
Basionym: Cyclococcolithus leptoporus inversus Deflandre in Deflandre and Fert, 1954
Synonyms:
Taxonomic discussion: Questionable holotype (specimens from Oamaru and Oxfordian) – originally described as a subspecies of Calcidiscus leptoporus. Shumenko 1995 proposed separating specimens with two cycles of elements in the central area, on the distal side. This variation seems to be due to preservation [my interpretation - JRY 2024]

Distinguishing features:
Parent taxon (Markalius): Circular placoliths with moderately birefringent shields, bright inner tube cycle and narrow or closed central areas.
This taxon: Markalius with closed central area.
