Field work in Portugal - 10 days in April 2016. Brian did a great job in choosing the localities and finding out about their stratigraphy. Now the 22kg of samples wait to be processed. See the results in the Catalogue of Portuguese Foraminifera at www.foraminifera.eu/portabout.html

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)

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.

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 :)

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