Caption: A Foraminiferan (Planorbulina mediterranensis) from the Mediterranean Sea. Forams are marine protozoa or protists that form a calcareous shell. They can be very abundant and deposits of their remains have formed chalk rocks. Because many species require special conditions they are good index fossils useful in geological and climatological studies. Polarised light LM X50.
