Taxonomy

Citation: Gansserina wiedenmayeri (Gandolfi, 1955)
Rank: Species
Basionym: Globotruncana wiedenmayeri
Synonyms: Globotruncana bahijae; Globotruncana wiedenmayeri magdalenaensis
Taxonomic discussion: Robaszynski et al., "Globotruncana gansseri dicarinata PESSAGNO, 1960, is put in synonymy with Globotruncana aegyptiaca, as already suggested by Pessagno, 1967." [copied from Chronos database]

Type images:

Original description: Test flat on the dorsal side with slightly inflatedchambers (generally six in the last whorl) convex on the ventralside with chambers strongly inflated and round, two finely raisedkeels close to the dorsal side and to each other, chambers short, petaloid; sutures, deep depressed, and radial on the ventral sidewith sutural elevations occasionally present m the last chambers. Test rough with spines, papillae, rugose ridges on the ventral side,developed arched lips (rosetta type) covering the umbilical aper-tures.
