Thirteen new radiolarian species, two new genera and one new combination from the Oligocene and early Miocene of Northland, New Zealand, are formally described. The species are: Heliodiscus tekopuaExpand
Seven new radiolarian species from the Oligocene of New Zealand
Seven new radiolarian species from the Oligocene Mahurangi Limestone of Northland, New Zealand, are formally described. They are: Dorcadospyris mahurangi (Trissocyclidae), Dictyoprora gibsoni,Expand
Insular biogeography: of mice and mites
The number of mite species using cricetid rodents in North America is related to the host distributional areas. The age and latitude of the distributional areas have unimportant effects on the numberExpand
[A review of the external morphology of the family pterygosomatidae and its systematic position within the Prostigmata (Acari: Acariformes)].
According to the traditional views mites of the family Pterygosomatidae belong to the cohort Anystina (Krantz, 1978; Kethley, 1982). Kethley (1982), however, noted similarities between these mitesExpand
Radiolaria from the late Eocene Oamaru Diatomite, South Island, New Zealand
Radiolarian faunas from seven localities of the well known Late Eocene Oamaru Diatomite were studied. All samples contained well preserved Radiolaria, generally of common or greater abundance, alongExpand
