Final Epithet
Cribrocentrum gartneri (Roth & Hay in Hay et al., 1967) Varol, n. comb.

Reticulofenestra gartneri Roth & Hay in Hay et al., 1967


Medium size [5.0-10.0µm] elliptical species of Cribrocentrum Perch-Nielsen 1971c having a wide central area (its width is greater than the width of the pelaga) spanned by a finely porous permanent mesh which is birefringent and placed proximally.


Cribrocentrum gartneri differs from similar size Reiculofenestra Hay, Mohler & Wade, 1966 species by having permanent central mesh birefringent in polarised light. It is distinguished from Cribrocentrum antillarum (Black, 1967) Varol, n. comb. by having porous central mesh whilst later having non-porous mesh.
