Ceratolithus? farnsworthii Gartner, 1967
Triquetrorhabdulus farnsworthii (Gartner,1967) Perch-Nielsen, 1984
Broad species of Pennalithus have three unequal size blades. The c-axis is vertical (vertical to the natural settling of the form). The blades are pointed at both ends but more pointed at one end than the other end. Perpendicular ridges ornament the broadest lateral blade. The median blade is distinctly curved.
Pennalithus farnsworthii differs from Pennalithus rugosus (Bramlette & Wilcoxon, 1967) by having a distinctly curved narrowest median blade, whilst the latter has a straight narrowest median blade. It is distinguished from Pennalithus striatus (Müller, 1974) by lacking additional longitudinal ridges.
