The J. W. Bailey Collection at the Farlow Herbarium of Harvard University holds type specimens of radiolarians from the sea off Kamchatka, or the present day Bering Sea, which he described in 1856 in his article: Notice of Microscopic Forms found in the soundings of the Sea of Kamschatka. Bailey described thirteen polycystine and two phaeodarian species, which are all recognized in the examined slide collection. In this paper the type specimens of the species described by Bailey (1856) are photographed and illustrated with some diagnostic information that may contribute to a refined taxonomic analysis.
