The precise and organised information made avaiable in micrtax is very useful and important for all foraminiferologists. Appreciate the great effort of the Team. Was just wondering where Guembelitria harrisi fits in? Or, is G. harrisi no more in 'use' as workers like Kroon and Nederbragt, (1990), considered G. harissi as a junior synonym of Guembelitria cenomana? Any more information on this would be appreciated!
Dear Dr. Whiso.
Thank you for the kind comments and it is very good to know you find the system useful. G. harrisi is indeed regarded here as a junior synonym of G. cenomana. For cases like this where a species does not appear where you expect it t the best thing to do is to use the search box to look for the species - this should usually allow you to find it.
