Abstract. Oligosphaeridium is a gonyaulacacean dinocyst lacking cingular processes and possessing a distinctive process centred on the antapical plate indicating a sexiform hyposomal tabulation. However, specimens referable to the description of Oligosphaeridium prolixispinosum Davey and Williams, 1966, although lacking cingular processes, are clearly not sexiform. As an additional complication, the holotype of Oligosphaeridium prolixispinosum possesses cingular processes. In this brief…

Late Cretaceous and Cenozoic fossil dinoflagellates and other palynomorphs from the scotian margin, offshore eastern Canada

Synopsis Palynomorphs, especially dinoflagellate cysts (dinocysts), have been at the forefront of research carried out on Mesozoic‐Cenozoic sediments on the Scotian Margin over the last 30–40 years:

LITOSPHAERIDIUM TOO: TWO NEW DINOFLAGELLATE CYST SPECIES FROM THE CRETACEOUS OF CALIFORNIA

The ‘Middle’ Cretaceous of the Northern California Coast Ranges has yielded unusually well-preserved specimens of Litosphaeridium, some of which have been analyzed in detail previously, and two species, which are from the late Albian based on the associated dinoflagellate cysts.
