Abstract

The definition and history of the genus Adelosina d'Orbigny, 1826 (Foraminifera: Miliolacea), comprising about sixty nominal fossil and extant species, are briefly reviewed. Adelosina is assigned to the Cribrolinoididae Haynes, 1981 (nom. transl.). An outline is given on its distribution and ecology, focusing on examples from the Indopacific and Mediterranean domains. The consistent link between high nutrient levels and the presence of Adelosina and its allies suggests their potential significance in paleoecological studies and in coastal pollution monitoring.
