ROTHINA Hanzlikova, 1966
Type species: Rothina silesica Hanzliková, 1966; OD.
Rothina Hanzliková, 1966 (*1414), p. 104.
Test flasklike, tapering somewhat toward the produced apertural neck, rounded base may have a short blunt tubular projection, three chambers recognizable in transmitted light, the small ovate proloculus being laterally enveloped by the succeeding two chambers; wall thick, siliceous, very finely agglutinated, surface smoothly finished; aperture circular, at the end of the produced neck, those of successive chambers apparently at opposite ends of the test. L. Cretaceous (Albian); Czechoslovakia (Carpathians).
Remarks: Although Rothina was regarded by Hanzliková (1966, *1414, p. 104) as con-generic with Nodophthalmidium pyriformis (Tappan), the latter has a porcelaneous wall with external agglutinated coating and a globular proloculus, followed by an undivided tubular enrolled second chamber prior to adding uniserial pyriform flasklike chambers with undivided interior. Rothina appears to be restricted to the Carpathian flysch deposits.
