Lithraphidites charactozorro


Classification: ntax_mesozoic -> Nannoliths inc sedis -> Microrhabdulaceae -> Lithraphidites -> Lithraphidites charactozorro
Sister taxa: L. carniolensis ⟩⟨ L. charactozorro, L. grossopectinatus, L. kennethii, L. praequadratus, L. quadratus ⟩⟨ L. acutus, L. alatus, L. pseudoquadratus ⟩⟨ L. houghtonii, L. moray-firthensis ⟩⟨ L. aichmoides, L. magnus, L. pugio, L. bollii, L. sp.

Distinguishing features:
Parent taxon (Lithraphidites): Bladed, rod-shaped nannoliths typically tapering at both ends and with a cruciform cross-section and variably developed lateral projections; crystallographic c-axis perpendicular to length
This taxon: Robust ?Lithraphidites species- consists of two slightly twisted interlocking blades with two attached wings. Two blades are slightly offset from one another and taper to a blunt point at their extremity
