Validation of Pedinocyclus and Quinquerhabdus, New Calcareous Nannoplankton Genera

Authors

  • David Bukry
  • M. N. Bramlette

Abstract

Validation of the names of these two calcareous nannoplankton genera is necessary because generic diagnosis was not given in Bukry and Bramlette (1969) and because a proposed new genus name, Leptodiscus, has been determined to be preoccupied by a dinoflagellate (Leptodiscus Hertwig, 1877). We thank Dr. Alfred R. Loeblich, Jr., for bringing this to our attention.
