The central idea of this article is the obligation of a micropaleontologist to respect without any doubt the rules and demands stipulated by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN), in order to avoid taxonomical mistakes. An unusual example of confusion generated by disregard for the ICZN Code rules is the case of Rosalina marginata REUSS. The species Rosalina marginata REUSS, 1845 emend. REUSS, 1854 is here transferred to the genus Dicarinella. Other specimens illustrated as “Marginotruncana marginata” for example the “neotype” established by Jirova (1956) are placed in the new species Marginotruncana pseudomarginata nom. novum.
