Definition

  • according to Hottinger (2006):

PSEUDOKERIOTHECA - a texture of external chamber walls in Mesozoic and later agglutinated foraminifers consisting of uniform, parallel, radial elements covered by some kind of tectum. The interpretation of these textural elements as pore-like cavities in the shell and their delimitation from the usually much larger and often more irregular parapores is not clear a present.
