Barra, D. and Violanti, D. (1989) I foraminiferi delle collezioni Seguenza del museo di paleontologia dell'università di Napoli e dell'istituto di scienze della terra dell'università di Messina. Accademia Peloritana dei Pericolanti Classe FF.MM.NN., 67. pp. 181-198.
Two small foraminiferal collections originally made by G. Seguenza are shortly dealt with. The first is stored in the Paleontological Museum (Dipartimento of Paleontology, Naples University), and was studied by D. Barra; the second, housed in the Earth Sciences Institut (Messina University), was studied by D. Violanti. The whole material was revised taxonomically, and entered to a index list; none of the considered species was originally erected by Seguenza. The collection in Napoli consists of 21 glass tubes containing one or more foraminiferal specimens, mostly benthic; each of them bears a Seguenza’s handwritten label with species name, authorship and the collecting locality. Miliolidae, agglutinated forms, Nodosariidae, Rotaliidae and Anomalinidae compose the collection. The collection in Messina incudes a residue of unknown provenance, and 28 board-slides with foraminiferal tests glued on; each slide bears Seguenza’s handwritten information on genus and/or species name, family, provenance and age of the material. Unfortunately, several slides resulted to be devoid of fossils which were lost. Miliolidae and agglutinated forms are poorly represented; Nodosariidae are common, Rotaliidae and Anomalinidae are also present.
