New data about the taxonomic position of Saccaminopsis



Succaminopsis was transferred from the Foraminiferida to the Algae by Skompski in 1986 (Acta Geologica Polonica 36). A study of the early void-filling cementation within ‘chambers’ led to the identification of a fossilized organic wall, the presence of which, viewed as the fossil organic wall of the stem-cell of a dasycladacean alga, reinforces the new taxonomic attribution of Saccaminopsis.Foraminiferida, Algae, cementation, Middle Carboniferous, Algerian Sahara.
