We live in a world of ever increasing complexity. In the 25 years since the publication of the Treatise volumes by Loeblich and Tappan (1964), the number of validly described foraminiferal genera has more than doubled from 1192 in 1964, to at least 2455 in 1988. Agglutinated foraminifera (including the proteinaceous allogromiids) occupy about 180 pages of the recently revised version (Loeblich and Tappan, 1988). From the astrorhizids to the chrysalidinids, there are now at least 624 valid agglutinated genera, nearly as many genera as in the hyaline calcareous benthic suborder Rotaliina.
