The petrology of fossils of the late Paleozoic sedentary Foraminifera Minammodytes (Tolypammininae) and of Apterrinella and Hedraites (Cornuspirinae) reveals diagenetic history and criteria applicable for determining original composition of seemingly agglutinate and magnesium calcite (“porcellaneous”) shells. Osagia and Ottonosia are emended to exclude Cornuspirinae from application of nomenclatorial law of priority. Pseudovermiporella is reclassified as Foraminifera, not algae. Remarkable preservations of Hedraites reveal new forms of foraminiferal parasites Minylecytheca oryxis and Minytrypetes mitus.
