Taxonomic discussion: This category is given here to allow comprehensive databasing of described nannofossils. It is needed because in the older literature some nannofossils were validly described and are included in e.g. the Farinacci catalog but it is not possible to tell what was described due to inadequacies in the illustrations and/or diagnosis. It also is useful to identify which taxa might usefully be identified as unsuitable for defining species from in the future. NB Listing in progress, does not include numerous Kamptner species, which will be listed separately
