Original description: Globigerina conica Iovceva & Trifonova 1961: The test is small, conical, the spiral consisting of 3-3.5 whorls. The chambers in the first whorl are small, fitting closely to each other and arranged in a high spiral. The last whorl consists of four chambers, larger and more clearly outlined than the former. The sutures are slightly depressed between the first chambers and more strongly between the last. The aperture is of medium size, umbilical, extending in the last four chambers.
