Species Globorotalia pseudobulloides Plummer 1926

Alternative name:
Globorotalia (Globorotalia) pseudobulloides Plummer 1926
Globorotalia (Turborotalia) pseudobulloides Plummer 1926
Diagnosis / Definition:
Bolli (1957):
Shape of test very low trochospiral, biconvex, moderately compressed. Equatorial periphery lobate. Axial periphery rounded. Wall calcareous, perforate, surface smooth. Chambers moderately compressed; 12 15, arranged in 2 2 1/2 whorls. The 5 chambers of the last whorl increase fairly rapidly in size. Sutures on spiral side curved, less so in the last chambers, depressed; on umbilical side radial, depressed. Umbilicus fairly narrow, open. Aperture a low arch with a lip; interiomarginal, extraumbilical umbilical. Coiling random in the Globorotalia trinidadensis and Globorotalia uncinata zones. A preference for dextral coiling (up to 75 percent) develops in the Globorotalia pusilla pusilla zone. Largest diameter of figured hypotype 0.35 min.
Discussion / Comments:
Bolli (1957):
Because of the interiomarginal, extraumbilical umbilical position of the aperture, pseudobulloides is removed from Globigerina to Globorotalia. The Globigerina pseudobulloides described and figured by Bronnimann (1952) from the upper Lizard Springs
