Cribrostomoides crassimargo


from the bottom of the Russian Barents Sea comes this agglutinating Foraminfera:

Cribrostomoides crassimargo
(Norman, 1892)

Common in the Arctic. The test is build using small grains cemented together.

The specimen is provided by Katya from Moscow.
Thanks a lot Katya ! I will need some time to work on the other specimens.
