Hexagonella hudlestonei Crockford, 1957

Hexagonella hudlestonei is a fossil from the Permian of Western Australia. The illustrations are from Crockford (1957). The thin sections were rephotographed using a digital camera (by P.Bock) from the original thin sections used by Crockford (1957), by permission of Geoscience Australia. The thin section of Pl.4, Fig.4 has deteriorated with the separation of the coverslip from the section, seen at lower left in the new image.
