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.

Editors' Notes
small taxa such as this are very poorly documented and Lmbert is probbly right to place it in a separate genus rater than sheo-horning into an existing one. However, suggestion that it is in someway intermediate between existing families seems much less -well substatniated
