Radiolarians with ‘prunoid’ morphologies (here defined as spumellarians with distinct external, generally ellipsoidal shells, usually bearing a pylome and having a lithelid, pylonid or spongy internal structure) are very common in polar Neogene sediments. Use of these taxa would improve resolution in Antarctic Neogene biostratigraphic and palaeoceanographic studies significantly, but the taxonomy of prunoids is poorly known. This paper reviews the existing literature of generic names commonly…

Taxonomy and species diversity of Holocene pylonioid radiolarians from surface sediments of the northeastern Indian Ocean
Pylonioid radiolarians show high species diversity in surface sediments of the northeastern Indian Ocean. They can be applied as important oceanographic indices in tropical and subtropical oceans,
Middle to Upper Pleistocene Polycystine Radiolarians from Hole 902-C9001C, Northwestern Pacific
This paper illustrates and reviews the taxonomic features of all the polycystine species encountered during this study and provides a detailed synonym list of each previously illustrated species from the northwestern Pacific Ocean in order to standardize applicable taxonomic names for the same morphospecies.
The legacy of early radiolarian taxonomists, with a focus on the species published by early German workers
It is suggested that Haeckel’s desire to discover and show evolutionary relationships lay behind this flawed approach to taxonomy.
Miocene and Plio-Pleistocene foraminiferal assemblages from Seymour Island, Antarctica
Abstract Here we describe new microfossil assemblages for the Miocene Hobbs Glacier Formation and the first possibly indigenous assemblages for the Plio-Pleistocene Weddell Sea Formation on Seymour
New species of Neogene radiolarians from the Southern Ocean – part III
In this paper, the third of a series of four, 25 new species are described from the Neogene sediments of the Southern Ocean: six spumellarians and nineteen nassellarians.

This paper presents first comprehensive record of Pliocene Radiolaria from Leg 119, Site 745 of the Antarctic region. Twenty five samples were taken from two sections, viz. 14H and 15H, from
New species of Neogene radiolarians from the Southern Ocean – part IV
25 new radiolarian species from the Antarctic Neogene are described and the finding of fragments of an unknown Middle Miocene phaeodarian is reported.
New species of Neogene radiolarians from the Southern Ocean
24 new species of Antarctic Neogene radiolarians are described herein: two entactinarians (Orodapis hericina and ORodapis? ferrealuma), two spumellarians (Actinomma nigriniae and Carposphaera? annikae) and twenty nassellarians.
Middle to Late Pleistocene radiolarian biostratigraphy in the water-mixed region of the Kuroshio and Oyashio currents, northeastern margin of Japan (JAMSTEC Hole 902-C9001C)
A continuous Quaternary sediment sequence was recovered from Hole 902-C9001C during the D/V Chikyu 2006 mission along the northeastern margin of Japan. The age and rate of deposition of this core


Antarctic Neogene Radiolarians from the Kerguelen Plateau, Legs 119 and 120
Abundant, generally well-preserved radiolarians from Sites 737, 744, 745, 746, 747, 748, and 751 were used in stratigraphic analysis of Neogene, and particularly middle Miocene to Holocene, Kerguelen
Cenozoic Radiolarians of the Antarctic, Leg 29, DSDP
The samples from Leg 29 were mounted in balsam without additional shipboard processing, and then studied and photographed by means of a lightmicroscope. Since the details of the skeletal structure
Well preserved middle Miocene to Recent radiolarians were recovered from several sites in the Weddell Sea by ODP (Ocean Drilling Program) Leg 113. Low rates of sedimentation, hiatuses, and poor core
Early to Middle Miocene radiolarian stratigraphy of the Kerguelen Plateau, Leg 120
Early to middle Miocene radiolarian assemblages were examined at three sites (747, 748, and 751) that were cored during Ocean Drilling Program Leg 120 south of the present polar frontal zone on the

Radiolarians occur in sediments from all northwest Pacific sites drilled on DSDP Leg 86. The oldest radiolarianbearing sediment was recovered at Site 581, where middle Miocene radiolarians were
The Christian Gottfried Ehrenberg Collection at the Museum fur Naturkunde in Berlin holds type specimens and original material for thousands of taxa of microscopic organisms, and through the use of unpublished taxonomic and geographic index volumes compiled byEhrenberg's daughter Clara it is usually possible to locate both the original type specimen and unprocessed original material in the collection.
