Radiolaria - Nassellaria

PaleoDB taxon number: 66446

Original description: Test multicyrtid, conical to subcylindrical, with or without constrictions between joints. Cephalis dome-shaped to conical, with or without horn. Test comprised of linearly aligned, relatively large tetragonal pore frames. Earlier chambers (cephalis, thorax, abdomen, and even first one or two post-abdominal chambers) covered with layer of microgranular silica (i. e. Drulanta n. gen. ) or with small irregular polygonal pore frames (i.e. Crubus n. gen.). Remaining chamers consisting of two transverse rows of tetragonal pore frames in each chamber and having costae superimposed between each row of pore frames. Costae thin to medium in thickness.
