Caption: Miliolid. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the shell of the foraminiferan Miliolid sp.Tests are composed of randomly oriented calcite needles that have a high proportion of magnesium along with organic material. Foraminiferans are marine single-celled protists that construct and inhabit shells (tests), which are composed of several chambers. They are one of the oldest phylogenetic groups (taxa) to continue existing. Foraminiferan fossils date back to the Cambrian period (about 540 million years ago) but may have existed for as long as 1.2 billion years. Magnification: x800 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
