Figure F37. Images of exceptionally well preserved calcareous nannofossils, Expedition 342. The majority of taxa shown are rarely seen in deep-sea carbonate oozes because of their fragility and susceptibility to dissolution and overgrowth (e.g., holococcoliths and Blackites species). Asterisk = taxa previously described from the Tanzanian microfossil lagerstätte only (e.g., Bown, 2005b; Bown et al., 2008). All images are at the same magnification.
