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
This taxon was shown by Nicholls (1979) to be a junior synonym of a silcifying organism unrelated to coccolithophores: Gyromitus disomatus. NB The coccolith-like scales are about 0.5 to 0.8 µm long.
