A larger agglutinated foraminifer originally described as a marine plant: the case of Arthrodendron Ulrich, 1904 (Foraminifera), its synonyms and homonyms.
103 - 110.
The large, agglutinated foraminiferal genus Aschemocella Vialov, 1966 (type species Aschemonella carpathica Neagu, 1964) and the body fossil Halysium Swidzinski, 1934 (type species Halysium Problematicum Swidzinski, 1934) are herein synonymized with the genus Arthrodendron Ulrich, 1904 (type species A. diffusum Ulrich, 1904), a form originally described as a marine alga from Upper Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) flysch sediments of the Kodiak Formation of the Yakutat Group (formerly Yakutat Formation) oil Pogibshi Island, Alaska. The species Aschemmiella carpathica Neagu is regarded as a subjective junior synonym of Arthrodendron diffusum Ulrich, which is herein lectotypified and transferred to the Foraminifera. J. Micropalueontol. 27(2): 103-110, November 2008.
