Classification: ntax_mesozoic -> Nannoliths inc sedis -> Nannoliths inc sed - radiate multielement -> Assipetra -> Assipetra terebrodentarius
Sister taxa: A. infracretacea, A. terebrodentarius, A. sp.

Distinguishing features:
Parent taxon (Assipetra): Blocky to globular nannoliths typically formed from intergrown elements that may show radial symmetry.
This taxon: Blocky, globular nannoliths formed from six or more complexly intergrown calcite blocks that are joined along broadly radial sutures; roughly circular in plan view and rectangular in side view.

Distinguishing features:
Parent taxon (Assipetra): Blocky to globular nannoliths typically formed from intergrown elements that may show radial symmetry.
This taxon: Blocky, globular nannoliths formed from six or more complexly intergrown calcite blocks that are joined along broadly radial sutures; roughly circular in plan view and rectangular in side view.


Morphology: The FO is usually considered to be late Hauterivian (Bergen, 1994; Channell et al., 1995) but slightly earlier at Shatsky Rise, where its range overlaps with Cruciellipsis cuvillieri, in sediments assigned to upper Subzone NC4b. This range overlap has also been reported by Erba et al. (1999) and Lozar and Tremolada (2003). The upper range is uncertain but specimens have been observed as high as the Campanian (Lees and Bown, 2005; Lozar and Tremolada, 2003).

I´m looking for the reference Applegate et al. (2007) cited in:

Assipetra terebrodentarius terebrodentarius Applegate et al. (2007) - small, <8µm

I just found the paper from 1987: Covington, J.M. & Wise, S.W., (1987). Calcareous nannofossil biostratigraphy of a Lower Cretaceous deep-sea fan complex: Deep Sea Drilling Project Leg 93 Site 603, lower continental rise off Cape Hatteras. Initial Reports of the Deep Sea Drilling Project, 93: 617-660.

Could you please send me the complete reference of Applegate et al. (2007)?

Best regards.

Sorry about that there was a typo there and the reference should have been to Applegate et al. in Covington & Wise 1987, There is no Applegate metal 2007 publication -or at least not one which is relevant.
