Siphonosphaera hyalina

Citation: Siphonosphaera hyalina Caulet 1986
taxonomic rank: species

Current identification/main database link: Siphonosphaera hyalina Caulet 1986

Original Description

Subspherial shell with two distal tubes and numerous very small circular pores. Extremity of tubes not latticed, perforated by small pores.

Total length, 100-130m.

Extra details from original publication
Remarks: Børklund and Goll (1979) point out the problem that arise from collosphaerid taxonomy. They think that all morphotypes can be assigned to one or two genuses. Until a detailed study of tube-bearing collosphaerids is completed, it seems more reasonable to use the old genera.
