Melanostrophus fokini Öpik (Graptolithina, Stolonoidea) - Fund einer vollständingen Kolonie in
einem ordovizische Geschiebe von Rendsburg, Schleswig-Holstein
Wolfgang ZESSIN & Karl Freiherr von PUTTKAMER
Archiv für Geschiebekunden 1994, 1, 10, 561-624
 
 
Abstract:

'Six new specimens of
Melanostrophus fokini Öpik from geschiebes of Schleswig-Holstein are described and figured. The
genus is assigned to the new family Melanostrophidae on the basis of its special construction of the colony and the
presumed special planctonic/benthic mode of life. The new genus
Stolonofolliculus is established for Melanostrophus
signum
due to profound differences in the separation of the stolons and because of the sessile mode of life.'
