Citation: Siphocampe nodosaria (Haeckel 1887)
taxonomic rank: species
Basionym: Lithomitra nodosaria
Taxonomic discussion: (Haeckel) 1887 p.1484 pl.79 fig.1 as Lithomitra; Takemura 1992 (ODP 122 SR) pl 3 fig 15

Catalog entries: Lithomitra nodosaria

Original description: Shell subcylindrical, with longitudinal ribs, and five to eight transverse strictures, and prominent girdles between them. On each girdle (at the lowermost edge of each joint) a single transverse row of circular pores. The three or four uppermost joints are united, and represent a conical cephalis.

Length of the shell (with six joints) 0.1; length of each joint 0.01 to 0.15, breadth 0.04 to 0.05. [dimensions in mm]
Remarks on original description: Haeckel listed Lithomitra nodosaria under the subgeneric name Lithomitrella, but did not include the subgeneric name in the species name.
Stratigraphic information for LM21 from Riedel, 1959, p.287.
Synonymized with Lithomitra arachnea (Ehrenberg) by Riedel, 1958.]
