Extra details from original publication
Wiesner (1931) proposed the name Globigerina bradyi for a minute high spired species of Globigerina, first recorded and figured (but not named) by Brady (1884) from the "Challenger"" Collections made in the Southern Ocean (Challenger Station 144), and subsequently found by himself also in the Southern Ocean in the vicinity of Crozet Island. Both the specimens illustrated by Brady (1884), referred to by Wiesner, and the specimens actually seen by the latter worker must constitute the syntypic series upon which the concept of this species was based. At our request, Dr. Kurt Diebel, of the Geologisch-Palaontologisches Institut und Museum der Humboldt Universitat zu Berlin, has kindly searched through the H. Wiesner collections in collaboration with Dr. Gruner, the Curator of the Zoologische Museum der Universitat. He has informed us that all material of the species G. bradyi is missing (letter dated 29th July, 1959). Consequently we have selected as lectotype of Globigerina bradyi Wiesner that specimen illustrated by Brady in 1884, pl. 82, figure 8, and refigured here (pI. 3, fig. 1); this specimen was obtained from Challenger Station 144, depth 1570 fathoms, and is registered in the British Museum (Natural History) as specimen number 19126.96.36.1998.
In 1861, Ehrenberg (pp. 276, 277, 308) described a minute elongate globigerine for which the name Pylodexia uvula was proposed; the specimens came from the Greenland Deep of the Northern Atlantic Ocean in the vicinity of Southern Greenland. Ehrenberg subsequently published illustrations of this form (1873,pi. 2, figs. 24, 25); these specimens were evidently mounted in Canada Balsam (Ehrenberg's usual practice) and drawn using transmitted light. We illustrate here (pI. 3, fig. 2) a topotype specimen of G. bradyi similarly mounted in Canada Balsam and photographed in transmitted light. Ehrenberg's (1873) figure 25 is reproduced here for comparison and it seems highly likely that G. bradyi Wiesner should be regarded as a junior synonym of Pylodexia uvula Ehrenberg."
