Taxonomy

Citation: Globorotalidae Blow 1979
Rank: Family
Taxonomic discussion: This family was not used in the Oligocene Altas (Wade et al. 2018) but is used by the SCOR Working Group on modern planktonic foraminifere (Brummer & Kucera 2014, 2015) and is a distinct clade in the phylogeny of Aze et al. 2011. 

Catalog entries: Globoquadrinidae;

Type images:

Distinguishing features: Perforate, non-spinose

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.
