Globigerinita iota Parker, 1962, and the validity of Tenuitellita Li, 1987 (Foraminiferida)

Drew Haman

Abstract. Tenuitellita Li, 1987 (type species Globigerinita iota Parker, 1962) is a validly established genus, despite the fact that the same type species has been selected for another previously proposed genus. The earlier proposed genus, Parkerina Fordham, 1986, is invalid as it does not conform to the Articles of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, and thus cannot compete on the Principle of Priority.
