Mazaganellaceae


Classification: ntax_mesozoic -> Podorhabdales -> Mazaganellaceae
Sister taxa: Axopodorhabdaceae, Biscutaceae, Calyculaceae, Cretarhabdaceae, Mazaganellaceae, Prediscosphaeraceae, Tubodiscaceae

Distinguishing features:
Parent taxon (Podorhabdales): Placolith (or modified placolith) coccoliths showing little or no imbrication. Typically, V-units form distal shield, R-units form proximal shield.
This taxon: Three-shielded placoliths; central-area wide, spanned by bars, grill, net or plate.
The distal shield may be high and flaring, formed from non-imbricating elements, joined along radial sutures. LM image is generally dark, but birefringence increases when the distal shield is high.
