Original description: Globigerinelloides aptiense Longoria 1974: Test as with genus, small size, evolute; peripheral outline subcircular, strongly lobate, five to six chambers in the last whorl; chambers in lateral view spherical to petaloid, increasing gradually in size as added, spherical in apertural view; umbilicus wide; sutures depressed and radial; relict apertures and flaps often observed.

Entries in the Catalog of original descriptions: Globigerinelloides aptiense;

Geological Range:
Notes: FO is recorded as in "H. gobachikae zone" in Chronos database this has been translated here as H. infracretacea zone but this is a bit rough and ready
Last occurrence (top): within H. planispira zone (111.84-113.26Ma, top in Albian stage). Data source: [copied from Chronos database]
First occurrence (base): within H. infracretacea zone (118.02-118.93Ma, base in Aptian 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
