Extra details from original publication
Species composition: Up to now two species - Blowiella blowi and B. saundersi - are known from the Aptian of Trinidad. western Europe and the USSR. Both species are found in the Upper Aptian of the Crimea.

Comparison. - The genus Blowiella differs from Planomalina, from which it is separated, and from Globigerinelloides by the absence of a multilamellar secondary thickening of the wall, the absence of septal growth layers, and, possibly, by the primary structural type of the wall. From the genus Leupoldina it differs by the absence of elongated club-shaped outgrowths on the peripheral margin and by the presence of septa between the last chambers (Gorbachik & Krechmar 1970). From the genus Clavihedbergella if differs by the planispriral structure of the test.
