Rhaptohelenina papuanensis, a new genus and species of benthic foraminifer from the Recent of the Papuan Plateau and Alexa Bank

  • Fred E. Clark (a1)

A suite of over 70 samples recovered from the tropical southwest Pacific Ocean and selected from the collection of Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) has been the basis of this author's current research. In the course of studying the Recent benthic foraminiferal faunas from these samples, a new species, also referable to a new genus, was identified in six of the samples.
