The evolution of Early Cretaceous Dorothiinae (Foraminiferida)

Damini Desai and F. T. Banner

Abstract. Dorothia and Marssonella are ataxophragmiacean genera typically possessing canaliculate walls. They are believed to have evolved independently from noncanaliculate Praedorothia gen. nov. and Protomarssonella gen. nov. of Early Cretaceous time.
