Large Oligocene Foraminifera from France 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, found near the city of Dax. Now we in Hamburg have made some SEMs and Bernard Remaud nice optical images. My identifications are Lepidocyclina sp. and two Miogypsina bantamensis. The size of the specimens is 3-4mm - extraordinary large forams. Michael Foraminifera.eu Project www.foraminifera.eu/dax.php
