A Mini-Catolog of Forams
 
 

This is to be a reference page which may be of some help to those interested in the amazing shells of forams.  This is a work in progress and I will add to it as I find time. The images are ones I have taken from specimens which I acquired from a micro-paleontologist who retired and didn't want the specimens simply discarded.  The majority of them were prepared in the 1970s and 80s. Since that time many taxonomic changes have taken place.  I am fascinated by forams, but am in no way an expert on them. The taxonomic designations which appear here are ones that were written on the slides by researchers and graduate students who specialized in these organisms. 

    In some cases there will be more than one image of a given foram either to show the shell from more than one perspective or to show variations within the species.
