Original descriptions of taxa. For coccolithophores, and many calcispheres, these are pages from the 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 also this page.

Editors' Notes
Not really identifable from this drawing but it looks like it could be Syracosphara pulchra HOL pirus type. lithostratos would have priority over pirus, but since the name is only being used informally now that is not an issue.
