Extra details from original publication
This species seems related to Globigerina venezuelana Hedberg from the Oligocene of Venezuela, but in Globigerina eximia the chambers are more inflated and more rapidly increasi ng in size as added, resulting in three instead of four chambers co nstituting the last whorl and in the last chamber making up a larger proportion of the test.
