Editors' Notes
Superfluous name. Proposed by Thalman (1950) as a new name for Globorotalia lobata Bermudez 1949, on the grounds that it would be a  homonym of Globorotalites lobata Brotzen 1948 if that species was transferred to Globorotalia. The latter species does not seem to be used but since it was a Palaeocene form there is no danger of it being a Globorotalia, so the new name is superfluous.
