In one of his 1844 manuscripts, C. G. Ehrenberg described the radiolarian species Lithobotrys(?) denticulata (now known as Antarctissa denticulata) and, as it was customary at the time, did so in Latin. Although in general his descriptions are relatively straightforward, I'm struggling with the last sentence of this one:
Lorica ovata ampla late porosa (poris in 1/100''' 2—3.) subtriloba, utrinque rotundata nec truncata, denticulis undique bispida, apertura obsoleta. Longit. 1/22'''
Habitus Lithocampae, sed nulli articuli. Structuram internam spiralem esse suspicor. Quae pars anterior quae posterior jure habeatur in toto genere non liquet.
Here are some pictures and drawings of the species, if that helps giving context.
