This paper presents, for the first time, a complete list of Mesozoic radiolarian species (mainly Polycistina) described between 1867 and 2008. It records 6296 taxa names described originally as new species or subspecies. The list provides only an objective record without revision of taxonomic status, and thus includes invalid taxa, junior objective or subjective synonyms, nomina dubia and nomina nuda.
