PI SUHR WILLUMSEN; Two new species of the dinoflagellate cyst genus Carpatella Grigorovich, 1969 from the Cretaceous–Tertiary transition in New Zealand. Journal of Micropalaeontology ; 23 (2): 119–125. doi: https://doi.org/10.1144/jm.23.2.119
A palynological study of Upper Cretaceous and Lower Paleocene sections from South Island, New Zealand, revealed the presence of two new species of Carpatella: Carpatella septata sp. nov. and Carpatella truncata sp. nov. Both species are stratigraphically important and the first occurrence of C. septata is a significant uppermost Maastrichtian event. Carpatella truncata is restricted to a narrow stratigraphical interval in the lowest Paleocene.
