Extra details from original publication
Sinistral and dextral coiling occurs with an apparent preference for the dextral type; otherwise there is little variation in the forms. This species resembles Globigerinoides subquadrata Bronnimann (1954 in Todd, et al.) Amer. Jour. Sci., vol. 252, No. 11, p. 680, pl. 1, figs. 5, 8a-c) but differs in the greater chamber inflation, size of the last chamber, visible initial spire, lower primary aperture, and more distinct sutural apertures. G. sacculiferous immatura LeRoy (Natuurk. Tijdschr. Nederl. Indie, Batavia, Java. dl. 99, afl. 6, p. 263, pl. 3, figs. 19-2 1) differs in the larger size, elongate early chambers, noncancellate test, and high arched primary aperture with a distinct lip.
