Keywords: silicoflagellates, double skeletons, Eocene Abstract. Two, rare double skeletons of Corbisema silicoflagellates have been observed from Early and Middle Eocene sediments. Both specimens are in the Star-of-David configuration, with the basal corners of each skeleton aligned with the middle of sibling basal sides. These specimens are of a species that has an elongate basal ring, which shows that skeletons are flipped 180° with respect to one another, rather than simply rotated.
