Catalogue of Orbitolinid Foraminifera
This database ...
...encompasses data on the taxonomy and distribution of Orbitolinid Foraminifera (family Orbitolinidae).
...is objective. All data has been taken from the literature without modification. The stratigraphic distribution of taxa (if indicated) is derived from the stratigraphy as indicated for the localities. The database does not cover the whole literature. Papers which does not contain sections of orbitolines have been for the most part ignored.
- ...is not yet complete but will be completed step by step. Advice on lacking literature or reprints are highly appreciated.
- ...was created and is maintained by Hannes Löser (Hermosillo, Mexico) using the taxonomic
database program PaleoTax.

Special thanks are going to Prof. Weihua Liao, Nanjing, for deciffering the chinese locality and age denominations, and to various colleagues who send me reprints of their publications, especially to Prof. Danielle Decrouez who always helped me to seek rare literature.
This site is under permanent construction. As far as literature was available to me, I have updated the database up to the year 2008.
