Summary

The Grzybowski Foundation Working Group on Foraminiferal Classification meets yearly to discuss current issues on the validity of agglutinated foraminiferal genera and their suprageneric classification. This meeting is held in conjunction with the MIKRO meetings on alternate years, or at the International Workshops on Agglutinated Foraminifera. The working group discusses problems of generic synonymy, reviews the newly published genera, and assigns or re-assigns the genera to suprageneric categories. This year’s agenda is open, but will include a review of all newly described genera and all genera currently assigned to the order Textularida. The Working Group makes recommendations and revisions to the "Catalogue of Agglutinated Foraminiferal Genera" currently being compiled by members of the Working Group. The Working Group on Foraminiferal Classification has a number of permanent members, but the session is open to observers or people who are willing to contribute expertise to the discussions.
