Original description: Falsotruncana maslakovae Caron 1981: Translated from French: Diagnosis: same features as those of the genus for which this form is the type species. Very low trochospiral test; the very flat profile is truncate even in the last chamber, lending the species its characteristic appearance. The poreless peripheral band reaches the last chamber (there, often perforate, cf. fig. 1d). The beaded double keel, not found in the last chamber, runs along the margins of the peripheral band in the remaining chambers.
