Distinguishing features: Parent taxon (Craticullithus): Placolith coccoliths with a wide central-area typically spanned by multi-element lattice-like grills or imperforate plates. This taxon: Medium to large, elliptical placolith coccoliths with broad central-areas spanned by a plate formed from small non-aligned rectangular elements.
Geological Range: Last occurrence (top): within NP9 zone (55.86-57.21Ma, top in Ypresian stage). Data source: Bown, 2010 First occurrence (base): within NP9 zone (55.86-57.21Ma, base in Thanetian stage). Data source: Bown, 2010
