Summary: As a result of reviewing calcareous nannoplankton taxonomy for the Nannotax website various emendments are proposed here. These affect extant helicosphaera holococcoliths, the extant genus Anacanthoica, Neogene Triquetrorhabdulus species, Palaeogene Calcidiscus species, and various Mesozoic taxa. In total twenty one new combinations and one new genus, Tripinnalithus, are proposed.
