Catalogues reproduce the complete type descriptions for genus- and
species-level taxa, including full-size reproduction of original
figures and charts. Diagnoses in western European languages are given
verbatim, while those in Russian, Chinese, and other non-western
languages are translated by professional micropaleontologists. The
stratigraphic level, locality and depository of the type material are
given for each species-level taxon, and bibliographic and taxonomic terms
are expanded and verified against the Ellis and Messina database.
Some 300 new type descriptionds are added yearly to each catalogue. Today,
the Catalogues have more than 47,000 Foraminifera, 26,500 Otracoda,
and 7,000 Diatom genera and species.
