Original Description
In a 1976 paper (Quilty, 1976) I proposed the name Globorotalia (Turborotalia) akersi for a species of Middle Miocene planktonic foraminifera. Dr. T. Saito pointed out (personal communication) that this is a junior homonym of G. akersi Snyder. 1975, and as such must be renamed.

I hereby propose to rename the species Globorotalia (Turborota!ia) galapagosensis in reference to its occurrence near the Galapagos Rise and Galapagos Islands in the East Pacific.
