Nannotax3 - ntax_mesozoic - Broinsonia dentata

Broinsonia dentata


Classification: ntax_mesozoic -> Arkhangelskiales -> Arkhangelskiellaceae -> Broinsonia -> Broinsonia dentata
Sister taxa: B. parca, B. enormis, B. furtiva, B. gammation ⟩⟨ B. verecundia, B. dentata, B. cenomanica ⟩⟨ B. ethmoquadrata ⟩⟨ B. signata, B. galloisii, B. matalosa, B. viriosa, B. sp.

Distinguishing features:
Parent taxon (Broinsonia): Outer rim of V-units, with slight clockwise obliquity, visible on distal surface and form dark rim in LM; central-area spanned by an axial cross, grill or perforate plate. 3 tiers visible in side view.
This taxon: axial cross with lateral bars


Taxonomy:

Citation: Broinsonia dentata Bukry, 1969
Rank: Species
Variants: Hattner & Wise (1980) argued that B. handfieldi should be considered a synonym of B. dentata since tapering of the longitudinal crossbars varies continuously within assemblages.
