[en] A scanning light microscope (SLM) is used to illustrate recent benthic foraminiferal
species from surface sediment samples collected in Bermuda subtropical environments.
Species illustrated here are the main foraminiferal species found in
Bermuda lagoons, reefs, caves, mangroves, and ponds, but also occur in most subtropical
and tropical areas. The SLM permits photography of specimens without coating
and gives pictures most similar to specimens that micropaleontologists see under a
dissecting reflected light microscope in a petri dish with water, in contrast to images
made with scanning electron microscopes. These pictures are the first SLM illustrations
of subtropical/tropical species of benthic foraminifera and will be very useful for
their identification. Bermuda recent sediment hosts a benthic foraminifera fauna as
diverse as in other subtropical and tropical areas, and the general trends of foraminiferal
distribution and morphology are similar. Remarks on foraminiferal distribution in
Bermuda and other subtropical/tropical areas are also presented.
