 Abstract: Amphistegina are common larger benthic foraminifer in coral reefs, with a nearly circumtropical distribution, and are major contributors to the CaCO3 budget of shallow marine environments. The family Amphisteginidae is dominant in Cenozoic carbonates. However, its potential as a proxy for paleoclimate reconstruction has not been completely explored. The intratest variability in trace elements of Amphistegina lessonii has been investigated using femtosecond-laser ablation-inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (fs-LA-ICP-MS). We collected and analyzed adult specimens of A. lessonii in September 2003, November 2003, January 2004, and March 2004, from ∼2 m water depth in the coral reefs of Akajima, Okinawa, Japan. Tests of A. lessonii from these four collections were analyzed for Mg/Ca of the septa to observe Test Size-Lifespan relationships. The lifespan of a specimen of A. lessonii of 1,200 µm in diameter is estimated at ∼3 and ∼2 months for specimens 900 µm in size. Over the estimated lifespans, Mg/Ca of individual specimens of A. lessonii is highly variable and displays co-variation with temperature and tidal heights. Future projects may apply and further test this approach for the reconstruction of the tropical shallow marine paleoenvironments.
