The dimensions of the test of Syringammina corbicula
The test size of Syringammina corbicula specimens collected-to-date ranges from 4-6 cm in diameter. The hemispherical test of the holotype of Syringammina corbicula measured 4 cm x 3.8 cm x 2.9 cm when initially collected, and the test of the figured paratype measured 4 cm x 3 cm x 2 cm (Richardson 2001). Xenophyophores measuring 6 cm in diameter are identified as S. corbicula and figured in Laureillard et al. (2004: Figure 1).
