Distinguishing features: Like G. lobata but nearly circular outline and more convex umbilical side.

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.

Description


Diagnostic characters: Biconvex, trochospiral, equatorial periphery almost circular with thick keel

Aperture: Interiomarginal umbilical-extraumbilical slit with an indistinct lip [Aze 2011, based on Kennett & Srinivasan 1983]


Wall type: Non-spinose; Smooth [Aze 2011]

Test morphology: Test trochospiral, biconvex, umbilical side inflated , equatorial periphery almost circular; six to eight chambers in the final whorl; sutures on spiral side limbate, coalescing with the thick peripheral keel, on umbilical side radial; surface coarsely perforate; umbilicus open; aperture interiomarginal, extraumbilical-umbilical, a slit with an indistinct lip. [Kennett & Srinivasan 1983]

Biogeography and Palaeobiology


Geographic distribution: Restricted to equatorial areas. [Kennett & Srinivasan 1983] Low latitudes [Aze et al. 2011, based on Kennett & Srinivasan (1983)]

[SCOR WG138]


Isotope paleobiology: Aze et al. 2011 ecogroup 3 - Open ocean thermocline. Based on light ∂13C and relatively heavy ∂18O. Sources cited by Aze et al. 2011 (appendix S3): Keller (1985); Hodell & Vayavananda (1993)

Phylogenetic relations: Gr. (F.) fohsi robusta, which is the end member of the Fohsella lineage, differs from Gr. (F.) fohsi lobata by its circular outline and more convex umbilical side. [Kennett & Srinivasan 1983]

Most likely ancestor: Fohsella lobata - at confidence level 4 (out of 5). Data source: Kennett & Srinivasan 1983, fig. 12.

Biostratigraphic distribution

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within M9b subzone (11.79-13.13Ma, top in Serravallian stage). Data source: Kennett & Srinivasan 1983
First occurrence (base): at base of M9b subzone (0% up, 13.1Ma, in Serravallian stage). Data source: Wade et al. (2011), zonal marker
