Nannotax3 - ntax_mesozoic - Quadrum intermedium

Quadrum intermedium


Classification: ntax_mesozoic -> Braarudosphaerales -> Polycyclolithaceae -> Quadrum -> Quadrum intermedium
Sister taxa: Q. gartneri, Q. svabenickae, Q. bengalensis ⟩⟨ Q. intermedium, Q. eptabrachium, Q. octobrachium, Q. eneabrachium, Q. giganteum, Q. sp.

Distinguishing features:
Parent taxon (Quadrum): Stellate to cubiform nannoliths with walls formed from two cycles of 4-9 elements and no central opening or diaphragm. When cubiform, the elements are joined along sutures that go out to the mid-point of the 'cube' edges.
This taxon: Stellate to cubiform Quadrum with four large wall-cycle elements alternating with one to three smaller wall-cycle elements.
