Original description: Planomalina alvarezi Eternod Olvera 1959:

Entries in the Catalog of original descriptions: Globigerinella tururensis;
Planomalina alvarezi;

Emended description: Test small, planispiral, biumbilicate, with a moderately lobate periphery; chambers inflated, globular, slightly overlapping, increasing gradually in size, 7 to 8 in the final whorl; wall finely perforate, smooth to finely hispid; aperture a moderately high arch at the base of the final chamber with a small lip and occasionally preserved relict apertures. [copied from Chronos database]

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within Maastrichtian Stage (66.04-72.05Ma, top in Maastrichtian stage). Data source: [copied from Chronos database]
First occurrence (base): within Maastrichtian Stage (66.04-72.05Ma, base in Maastrichtian stage). Data source: [copied from Chronos database]

Plot of occurrence data:

Dec 2017 - Plotting of Neptune data has been re-enabled on the Mesozoic pages following revision of the age-models in Neptune. The data is, however, still very sparse for the Early Cretaceous
