Revised taxonomy; an atlas of British Recent foraminiferids
Journal of Micropalaeontology (May 2000) 19, Part 1: 44


Since the publication of An Atlas of British Recent Foraminiferids (Murray, 1971) there have been many taxonomic changes. Some result from the revised generic classification summarized by Loeblich & Tappan (1987), some from later taxonomic revision, while others are corrections. In the following list, the name used in 1971 is followed by the revised name. Where the generic assignment is after Loeblich & Tappan (1987) the new name is listed without a reference. OD stands for original designation, i.e. the species is type of the genus. Brief explanations are given as appropriate. Pl. 1: Reophax scottii Chaster = Leptohalysis scottii (Chaster); thin, delicate and flexible test. Pl. 4: Cribrostomoides jeffreysii (Williamson) = Veleroninoides jeffreysii (Williamson); evolute planispiral test with interio-areal aperture (Jones et al., 1993) Pl. 8: Textularia sagittula Defrance group: as was noted on p. 31, this is a complex of variable forms. It includes Textularia bocki Hoeglund, Spirorutilis wrighti (Silvestri), and Textularia spp. 1-3 of Banner & Pereira (1981). Pl. 9: Textularia earlandi Parker = Morulaeplecta bulbosa Hoeglund; streptospiral initial end. Pl. 10: Trochammina globigeriniformis (Parker & Jones) var. pygmaea Hoeglund = Portatrochammina murrayi Broennimann & Zaninetti, 1984; distinguished from T. g. var. pygmaea (apertural slit without a lip) by having a slit-shaped aperture "which extends below the border of the umbilical flap from the first chamber of the final whorl to the penultimate chamber". Pl. 11: Trochammina ochracea (Williamson) = Lepidodeuterammina ochracea (Williamson); OD. Pl. 12: Trochammina rotaliformis Heron-Allen & Earland = Deuterammina sp.; according to Broennimann . . .
