Inauris tubulata Foraminifera Fossil


Images taken from microscope of the monotypic agglutinate foraminiferan fossil. This fossil has been identified as an Inauris tubulata (Conkin, Conkin & Thurman, 1979). It was found in the Jeffersonville Limestone that dates to Devonian Period. The locality was the Gilmore Quarry, Utica Indiana USA. This was a picture I took over 10 years ago from one of Dr. Conkins microscope slides. It was never used in publication I far as I can recall.
