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.

Original Description

Editors' Notes
Translation of diagnosis: Flat radial calcareous-body of hexagonal outline with six openings lying in the direction of the diagonals. The hub-like central part from which the spokes go off, bears a short distally projecting stalk. The edge of the calcareous-body is inclined, so the proximal diameter is smaller than the distal.
