Foraminifera caught my interest. They are precious and their study covers so many areas: From field- to home-work, from rock-formations to photography. SEM and computer -stuff. I like the worldwide foraminiferal community - so help- and thoughtful people. Share may enthusiasm.
A couple of weeks ago I received a package of 400g from Adrian - one of
the few contributors for foraminifera.eu, who sends us samples. Adrian
is a malacologist. It contained quite well preservered sediments
from the Oligocene (Chattian) of Southern France. Now we in Hamburg
have made some SEMs and Bernard Remaud nice optical images. My
identifications are Lepidocyclina sp. and Miogypsina bantamensis. Recommendations of literature on such Oligocene/Miocene larger foraminifera are welcome and maybe send via PM.
