Taxonomic discussion:
This category is given here to allow comprehensive databasing of described coccolithophores. It is needed because in the older literature some coccolithophores were validly described and are included in e.g. the Farinacci catalog but it is not possible to tell what was described since the illustrations and diagnosis were inadequate.
