Post-depositional shape modification by calcite overgrowth in Emiliania huxleyi and Umbellosphaera irregularis is demonstrated in Late Quaternary sediments from the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba. Overgrowth may produce forms which resemble discoasters, thus raising taxonomic problems. Waters of the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba, supersaturated with CaCO3, are probably the cause of this modification.
