Original description: Test flatly trochospiral; chambers flat, slightly inflated; peripheral margin subacute to acute, imperforate, provided with an undifferentiated keel; keel pustulose to spinose, never showing tendencies to split into two keels, forming dorso-septal branches only, which are usually weak; ventro-septal branches and periumbilical extensions absent; cameral aperture interiomarginal-umbilical; lips fairly long, slightly arched lengthwise, covering partly the small umbili- cus. Ceriomanian to Maestrichtian.

Entries in the Catalog of original descriptions: Globotruncanella

Distinguishing features: Test a low trochospiral, planoconvex to concavoconvex, compressed, chambers petaloid, about five in the final whorl, sutures radial, depressed, umbilicus of narrow to medium size, periphery acutely angled, with nonperforate carinal band or true keel, peripheral outline lobulate; wall calcareous, perforate, with pustulose suface and peripheral keel; primary aperture interiomarginal, extraumbilical-umbilical, in early chambers provided with a small triangular porticus, later with a distinct tegillum crossing the umbilicus, and with accessory apertures around the margins.

Plot of occurrence data:

Dec 2017 - Plotting of Neptune data has been re-enabled on the Mesozoic pages following revision of the age-models in Neptune. The data is, however, still very sparse for the Early Cretaceous
