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 compiled by Prof A. Farinacci 1969-1989 and updated by Richard Howe 2000-2016 - see also this page.

Editors' Notes
Spelling: the species name is spelt pelliculathus in the original description (de Kaenel & Villa 1996 p. 123) but pelliculatus in the figure captions, abstract and on the occurrence tables.  The derivation of the name is given as "from Latin pellicula, skin". Given this derivation the correct form should be pelliculatus, so this is used here.
