Citation: Dentoglobigerina juxtabinaiensis Fox & Wade 2013
Rank: Species
Taxonomic discussion:  This species is distinguished from D. binaiensis (Koch) by having 4 rather than 3 chambers in the final whorl, less rapid chamber expansion and a more open umbilicus.

Distinguishing features: Like D. binaiensis but with 4 rather than 3 chambers in the final whorl, less rapid chamber expansion and a more open umbilicus.

NB These concise distinguishing features statements are used in the tables of daughter-taxa to act as quick summaries of the differences between e.g. species of one genus.
They are being edited as the site is developed and comments on them are especially welcome.

Biogeography and Palaeobiology

Phylogenetic relations: It appears to have been descended from binaiensis and survived the extinction of that form. [Wade et al. 2018]

Most likely ancestor: Dentoglobigerina binaiensis - at confidence level 3 (out of 5). Data source: Wade et al. 2018.

Biostratigraphic distribution

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within M5 zone (15.10-16.38Ma, top in Langhian stage). Data source: Fox & Wade 2013
First occurrence (base): within M3 zone (17.54-19.30Ma, base in Burdigalian stage). Data source: Fox & Wade 2013
