Description The description of this species is too meagre to be recognizable, and there is only a small sketch of the skeleton provided, which is likewise not sufficient. Sollas (1888: 326) assigned authorschip to Haeckel, but this is incorrect. Haeckel donated the (small) specimen to Zittel without further information, and he was not involved in its description. Lendenfeld (1903: 128) reverted authorship to Zittel. [details]
