Both pore-like features have nothing in common with true pores. Septal pores are tiny multiple foramina. The nature of chomatal pores, a wall texture particular to fusulinids, is not understood at present. c: choma; c*p: chomatal "pores"; kth: keriotheka; sp: septal "pores". t: tunnel; te: tectum; (Hottinger, 2006; fig. 66 [1] CC/BY-NC-SA)
