Original Description

Test a low trochospire with a trilobed equatorial periphery. Wall calcareous, perforate, surface finely to coarsely perforate. Chambers ovate, the last chamber nearly equal in size to the penultimate chamber. Sutures slightly depressed on the spiral and umbilical sides.

Umbilicus very shallow. Apertures sutural, two, rarely three, at the base of the last chamber opposite the two umbilical sutures of the ante-penultimate chamber.

Size: Greatest diameter of holotype 0.35 mm.

Extra details from original publication
Both smooth walled and coarsely ornamented forms are found within this species, which suggests that it may be polygenetic. The smooth walled form is possibly related to Globigerina eamesi Blow and is much rarer than the coarser walled form which is related to Globigerina woodi. The more coarsely ornamented form is regarded as being the more typical.
