On Wondersella athersuchi, a new stratigraphically significant hedbergellid foraminiferan from the Cretaceous Shuaiba Formation of the Middle East

F. T. Banner and A. R. E. Strank

Abstract. Wondersella athersuchi, gen. et sp. nov., is a uniquely streptospiral hedbergellid apparently confined to the latest Aptian in pelagic micritic limestones of the Middle East. This taxon probably characterised highly stratified, oceanic-marginal environments of central, palaeoequatorial Tethys.
