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
 Original description
Coccolithe elliptique, avec une bordure marginale relativement étroite, constituée de deux séries de lames de calcite entourant une vaste aire centrale composée de microcristaux qui s'organisent pour former huit piliers, situé de part et d'autre des axes de l'embase du coccolithe et soutenant une hampe cylindrique, creuse, grêle, de longueur variable.

An elliptical coccolith, with a relatively narrow rim, consisting of two series of calcite laminae surrounding a wide central area composed of microcrystals that are organized to form eight pillars, located on either sides of the coccolite base and supporting a cylindrical shaft, hollow, slender, of variable length.
