Carterina spiculotesta is an extant foraminifera species that makes a calcareous test with secreted spicules embedded into its wall. Modern populations are reported from few regions in Brazil, but this is the first report of living C. spiculotesta found on an artificial substrate, which is located near industrial outfalls.
