Original descriptions of taxa. For coccolithophores, and many calcispheres, these are pages from the Farinacci & Howe Catalog of Calcareous Nannofossils. In other cases (e.g. non-calcifying haptophytes) the data is directly compiled on this site. The "Catalogue of Calcareous Nannofossils" was originally compiled by Prof A. Farinacci 1969-1989, since 2000 it has been updated and extended by Richard Howe - see The Farinacci and Howe Catalog - an Introduction.

Editors' Notes
Transltion of diagnosis: Elliptical coccoliths with a narrow wall, composed of oblique and overlapping calcite plates. The central area is occupied by buttresses located in the axes of the ellipse. A massive stem stands at the center of the coccolith. The structure is completed by a grid whose perforations are of varying size, shape and arrangement.
