Nannotax3 - ntax_mesozoic - Calcivascularis

Calcivascularis


Classification: ntax_mesozoic -> Stephanolithiales -> Parhabdolithaceae -> Calcivascularis
Sister taxa: Bucanthus, Calcivascularis, Crucirhabdus, Diductius, Mitrolithus, Parhabdolithus, Timorella, Umbria

Distinguishing features:
Parent taxon (Parhabdolithaceae): Murolith (protolith type) coccoliths with bicylic rims and central-areas spanned by an axial-cross or transverse bar bearing a broad, often long, spine.
This taxon: Protolith coccoliths with high rim, inner rim cycle not clearly developed, upper part of coccolith filled by mass of radiating elements.


Daughter taxa (time control age-window is: 0-800Ma)
Calcivascularis cassidyi
Small Calcivascularis with a high number of rim elements, sub-parallel walls, and a circular horizontal outline.
Calcivascularis jansae
Very tall, narrow, steeply sloping rim with a central area filled with a mass of radially arranged elements. Most commonly seen in side view.
Calcivascularis sp.

Taxonomy:

Citation: Calcivascularis Wiegand 1984
Rank: Genus
Type species: Calcivascularis jansae Wiegand, 1984

Taxonomic discussion:
Prins 1969 suggested evolution of M. irregularis (=C. jansae) from Mitrolithus elegans. Kristan-Tollmann (1988, 1995) suggested it should be placed in Eoconusphaera, and  Bown & Cooper 1989 noted similarities with Conusphaera and Eoconusphaera. Recent practice has tended to be to use the genus Calcivascularis whilst noting the strong similarities to Eoconusphaera
