Taxonomical identification: Saccobolus minimus-type

First publication: Shumilovskikh, L.S., Seeliger, M., Feuser, S., Novenko, E., Schlütz, F., Pint, A., Pirson, F. and Brückner, H. (2016) The harbour of Elaia: A palynological archive for human environmental interactions during the last 7500 years. Quaternary Science Reviews 149, 167–187

Description: The spores are characterised by a violet to purple-brownish pigmentation and their arrangement in firmly clustered bundles (Bell, 2005; Doveri, 2014). The spores found in core Ela-70 have a size of 13–14 × 7–8 µm. They resemble very much those of Saccobolus minimus (13.5–16 × 7–8 µm), S. truncates (14.8–15.3 × 7.2–7.6 µm) and S. depauperatus (12.5–15 × 6.5–7 µm) (Doveri, 2007 p. 441) and are therefore included in the herewith erected S. minimus-type.

Palaeoenvironmental indication: Saccobolus is a widespread genus of the Ascobolaceae (Ascomycetes) covering about 30 mainly coprophilous species (van Brummelen, 1967; Kirk et al., 2008).
