We have now fully added all 1525 drawings of foraminifera from Bradys Challenger Collection following the identification by Jones, R.W. , 1994 The drawings are found elsewhere, but we offer a multicriteria query at http://www.foraminifera.eu/brady.php (=>make your own choices)

Dieter (Foraminifera.eu-Team) made micrographs of forams found in Rupelian (Oligocene) material from Malliss, Northern Germany

A field trip will lead us to this clay-pit on the 31th of August.

We share for free our services and expertise by shooting optical and SEM images from sent in raw material or single specimens. Here is an example of 100 well picked and cleaned Miocene microfossils sent to us.
We provide the sender with the SEM images for non-commercial usage. We also add our suggestion for identification and relevant literature.
The idea is to foster the interest in foraminifera and get in touch with other nerds like us :)

Contribution of the month: Stefan sent ~100 well cleaned Miocene foraminifera from Gross Pampau, Northern Germany for SEM imaging: http://www.foraminifera.eu/grosspampau.php

Thanks for this great contribution. We will shoot more SEMs.

Foraminifera caught my interest. They are precious and their study covers so many areas: From field- to home-work, from rock-formations to photography. SEM and computer -stuff. I like the worldwide foraminiferal community - so help- and thoughtful people. Share may enthusiasm.

More SEM illustrations of Miocene foraminifera from Gross Pampau, Northern Germany are added to our database, such as this Uvigerina and Melonis.
The sample was provided by contributor Stefan. Thanks.

Atlas of Portuguese Foraminifera www.foraminifera.eu/apf.php
based on our contacts to Portuguese scientists and avocational paleontologists we started to build an Atlas of Portuguese Foraminifera.
So far it contains just 120+ specimens:
Holocene: a few from the Challenger expedition. ~ 60 in the pipeline from the Azores (Cidalina Lopes) see image
Pleistocene: Oporto Seamount (Dr. Lucia de Abreu)
Miocene: Mem Moniz (sampled together with Brian Ottway), many more samples from the Miocene are in the pipeline
Lower Cretaceous: Luz, Luz marls (sampled together with Brian Ottway)
more to come: contributions by Prof. Paulo Legoinha, Lisbon and the University of the Algarve (?)
Contributions of Images and well documented samples are welcome.

Introduction
Foraminifera caught my interest.
They are precious and their study
covers so many areas: From field-
to home-work, from rock-formations
to photography. SEM and computer
-stuff. I like the worldwide foraminiferal
community - so help- and thoughtful
people. Share may enthusiasm.
