Distinguishing features: Like G. ruber but somewhat aberrant primary aperture and large supplementary apertures

NB These concise distinguishing features statements are used in the tables of daughter-taxa to act as quick summaries of the differences between e.g. species of one genus.
They are being edited as the site is developed and comments on them are especially welcome.

Description


Diagnostic characters: Large, medium to high trochospiral, subquadrate outline

Aperture: Primary aperture interiomarginal umbilical wide arch with rim. Supplementary sutural apertures on spiral side [Aze 2011, based on Kennett & Srinivasan 1983]


Wall type: Spinose; Cancellate [Aze 2011]

Test morphology: Test large subquadrate, medium to high trochospiral, three subspherical to ovate chambers in the final whorl; sutures radial, depressed; surface coarsely perforate; primary aperture interiomarginal, umbilical, a wide-open asymmetrical arch; supplementary apertures large, high arch situated over sutures of earlier chambers. [Kennett & Srinivasan 1983]

Biogeography and Palaeobiology


Geographic distribution: Warm to cool subtropical. [Kennett & Srinivasan 1983] Low latitudes [Aze et al. 2011, based on Kennett & Srinivasan (1983)]

[SCOR WG138]


Isotope paleobiology: Aze et al. 2011 ecogroup 1 - Open ocean mixed-layer tropical/subtropical, with symbionts. Based on very heavy ∂13C and relatively light ∂18O. Sources cited by Aze et al. 2011 (appendix S3): Keller (1985)

Phylogenetic relations: The morphology of Gs. siegliei closely resembles Gs. ruber from which it seems to have been derived during the Late Miocene by developing somewhat aberrant primary and supplementary apertures. [Kennett & Srinivasan 1983]

Most likely ancestor: Globigerinoides ruber - at confidence level 3 (out of 5). Data source: Kennett & Srinivasan 1983, fig. 10.

Biostratigraphic distribution

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within N18 zone (5.20-5.72Ma, top in Zanclean stage). Data source: Kennett & Srinivasan 1983
First occurrence (base): within N16 zone (8.58-9.83Ma, base in Tortonian stage). Data source: Kennett & Srinivasan 1983
