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
The very similar species Gephyrocapsa omega was decribed by Bukry (1973) in DSDP Initial Reports vol 16 published in April 1973 whereas G. parallela was described by Hay & Beaudry (1973) in DSDP Initial Reports vol 15 published in December 1973. Since G. omega was published first it has priority.
