Abstract

Lakadongia indica n. gen., n. sp. erected by Matsumaru and Jauhri (2003) is a junior synonym of Setia tibeticaFerràndez-Cañadell 2002. The genus Lakadongia is based on ambiguous characters and misinterpretation of oblique sections, and it is considered invalid. The postulated evolutionary relationship of these Paleocene orbitoidiform foraminifera with those of Cretaceous age is not justified by structural similarities and inconsistent with the stratigraphical record.
