Helladosphaera vavilovii

Classification: ntax_cenozoic -> Holococcoliths -> bridged -> Helladosphaera -> Helladosphaera vavilovii
Sister taxa: H. cornifera, H. pienaarii, H. vavilovii, H. sp.


Citation: Helladosphaera vavilovii (Borsetti & Cati 1976) Young & Kleijne, in Young et al., 2003
Rank: Species
Basionym: Homozygosphaera vavilovii Borsetti & Cati 1976
Taxonomic discussion: The species was transferred to Helladosphaera by Young et al. (2003) since they showed that it was dimorphic

Distinguishing features: BCs like Homozygosphaera arethusae but bridge triangular in profile, terminated by ridge parallel to long axis of coccolith; open wall structure.
CFCs are well differentiated, helladoliths
