Test high to low trochospiral, with two to four whorls of rapidly enlarging globular chambers, umbilicus small, periphery rounded, peripheral outline lobulate, sutures radial, depressed; wall calcareous, hyaline, radial, finely perforate (about 30 pores per 100 μm2), surface with imperforate small tubercles and costellae that rarely have a few pores and may appear cancellate; aperture a high umbilical arch, bordered above by a narrow lip.

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

Hi Jeremy,

Could you please tell me in which superfamily do you include Conoglobigerinidae?

Thank you,


Jeremy Young (UK)

At least for now we are not using superfamilies in the Mesozoic module so I don't know.
