Genus Micramphora  Valkanov, 1970

 

Diagnosis: Test rounded, pot-shaped, with somewhat constricted neck and a funnel-shaped terminal pseudostome (Fig. 9). Shell transparent, chitinoid. Most species small (<30 µm). Habitat: marine interstitial. Six species, all marine. A similar genus with an irregular apertural funnel but lacking a neck is Micramphoraeopsis Sudzuki (1979). Whether it is a valid genus is yet to be confirmed. Refs. Valkanov (1970), Chardez (1 977).
