SACCORHIZA Eimer and Fickert, 1899
Type species: Hyperammina ramosa Brady, 1879 (*337), p. 33: OD(M).
Saccorhiza Eimer and Fickert, 1899 (*1088), p. 670. ?Pseudoschizammina Saidova, 1975 (*2695), p. 24; type species: Pseudoschizammina edita Saidova. 1975; OD. Hyperammina (Saccorhizal Hofker, 1972 (*1521), p. 53 (nom. transl.).
Test large, up to 8 mm in length, proloculus followed by tubular chamber that may branch dichotomously or show very irregular growth, with terminal stoloniferous projections; wall of agglutinated quartz grains and other minerals held in an organic inner layer, commonly with a large component of outwardly projecting sponge spicules that give the surface a hirsute to feltlike appearance, dark gray to yellowish in color; aperture rounded, at the open ends of the stolonlike branches. Holocene; N. Pacific, at 4,100 m, N. Atlantic, at 120 m to 6,000 m; Caribbean.
Remarks: Hofker (1972, *1521, p. 53) suggested restricting Saccorhiza to those with surface covered with matted sponge spicules, stating that Brady's specimen figured from the North Pacific did not belong to the same taxon. However, the latter specimen earlier had been designated as the lectotype for this species (Loeblich and Tappan, 1964, *1910, p. C190), hence cannot be excluded from the taxon bearing this name.
