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 originally compiled by Prof A. Farinacci 1969-1989, since 2000 it has been updated and extended by Richard Howe - see also this page.
Taxa are sorted alphabetically for simple browsing, or you can use search boxes at the top & bottom of the page

Editors' Notes The taxon was published as S. marginaporata by Knappertsbusch (1993) however the name as published was incorrectly formed according to ICN Art 60.8 and so the orthography should be emended to marginiporata. [M.D. Guiry written comm. 2017]
