Original description: Globotruncana asymetrica Sigal 1952: Translated from French. A species characterized by a strong asymmetry of the test, displaying a degree of analogy with some Cenomanian Rotalipora (Rotalipora reicheli (Mornod)[Globotrucana (Rotalipora) reicheli,1950], for example).

Entries in the Catalog of original descriptions: Globotruncana (Globotruncana) ventricosa carinata;
Globotruncana asymetrica;
Globotruncana fundiconulosa;

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): at top of D. asymetrica zone (100% up, 84.2Ma, in Santonian stage). Data source: zonal marker (from Timescale Creator)
First occurrence (base): at base of D. asymetrica zone (0% up, 86.7Ma, in Coniacian stage). Data source: zonal marker (from Timescale Creator)

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
