Discoidal radiolarians have been described by several authors. However, their terminology has not yet been adequately defined, and additional terms are necessary for adequate description. In this paper we summarize the definition of 16 existing morphological terms and propose 35 new, which we believe are useful to describe discoidal radiolarians. The terminology summarized here makes it possible to describe the structure of discoidal radiolarians clearly and can be applied in future work.
