Current identification/main database link: Globoturborotalita nepenthes (Todd 1957)
"Test small, compactly coiled except for the last formed protruding chamber; height of spire ranges between three-quarters of and equal to diameter of spire. Chambers indistinct, slightly inflated; four chambers constituting the last whorl, with a fifth elongate chamber extending downward and at an angle to the axis of coiling. Sutures indistinct, except the last few which are indented. Wall thin, calcareous, perforate, ornamented by a rather coarse cancellation. Aperture large and semicircular or broad and arched at the umbilical edge of the protruding chamber, bordered by a thickened and slightly upturned lip of clear shell material.
Size: Diameter exclusive of protruding chamber 0.30-0.37 mm.; greatest dimension of test 0.42-0.58 mm.
Extra details from original publication
This species is distinctive in its protruding final chamber, and this character is quite uniform so it cannot be regarded as an abnormality. The species shows a wall ornamentation somewhat similar to that of Globigerinoides sacculifer (Brady), and both species have distinctly shaped final chambers. The adult test of Globigerina nepenthes is much smaller, however, and the widely open aperture, as well as the protruding thumblike final chamber, serves to distinguish it easily.""
