Taxonomical identification: No information

Similar: HdV-704B

First publication: Wieckowska-Lüth (forthcoming)

Other publication/s: Bakker, R. and van Smeerdijk, D.G. (1982) A palaecological study of a Late Holocene section from 'Het Ilperweld', W. Netherlands. Review of Palaeobotany and Palynology 36, 95–163

Description: Unknown microfossil, ellipsoid, greenish yellow to light brown, 48.2‒51.9 µm in diameter, with closely covered up to 4.2‒4.6 µm high appendages, surface often folded and/or split. This type is similar to HdV-704B – a cyst of dinoflagellate – , however, it does not have a reticulate surface pattern (Bakker et al. 1982).

(Sub-) Fossil occurence: In terrestrial deposits and in deposits formed under water cover

Co-occurence: Dinoflagellate cysts and cyanobacteria

Modern occurence: No information

Palaeoenvironmental indication: May be associated with soil erosion processes
