Taxonomic discussion: Archaeoglobigerina bosquensis Pessagno differs from A. blowi Pessagno (1) by being equally dextrally and sinistrally coiled; (2) by having a relatively high trochoidal spire; (3) by having a somewhat smaller, deeper umbilicus; (4) by usually having six or seven as opposed to four or five chambers in the last whorl; (5) by having chambers which gradually increase in size; and (6) by lacking keels and imperforate peripheral bands. A. bosquensis derives its name from that of the South Bosque River. [copied from Chronos database]

Original description: "Test coiled in relatively high trochospiral coil; 6-7 chambers in last whorl. Coiling sinistral or dextral with no preferences insofar as known. Chambers spherical in shape about as wide as long; tending to shift toward the umbilicus with coiling. Sutures curved, radial, depressed both spirally and umbilically. Umbilicus deep and of moderate to small size. Early chambers of last whorl somewhat rugose. Keels, imperforate peripheral bands lacking in specimens thus far encountered. Primary aperture interiomarginal, umbilical in position; no evidence of tegilla due to unfavorable conditions of preservation in Austin chalk. Outer wall radial hyaline perforate; septal walls microgranular hyaline, finely perforate."

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
