Rank: Genus
Basionym: Guembelitria cretacea
Type species: Guembelitria cretacea Cushman, 1933

Entries in the Catalog of original descriptions: Guembelitria

Distinguishing features: Test subconical, chambers globular and inflated, triserial throughout, sutures distinct, depressed; wall calcareous, optically radial, finely and irregularly perforate, with each pore elevated on a pore mound; aperture an interiomarginal arch at the base of the final chamber, with an imperforate bordering lip.


Diagnostic characters: Test subconical, chambers globular and inflated, triserial throughout, sutures distinct, depressed; wall calcareous, optically radial, finely and irregularly perforate, with each pore elevated on a pore mound; aperture an interiomarginal arch at the base of the final chamber, with an imperforate bordering lip.

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within Maastrichtian Stage (66.04-72.05Ma, top in Maastrichtian stage). Data source: Total of range of species in this database
First occurrence (base): within Aptian Stage (112.95-126.30Ma, base in Aptian stage). Data source: Total of range of species in this database

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

The precise and organised information made avaiable in micrtax is very useful and important for all foraminiferologists. Appreciate the great effort of the Team. Was just wondering where Guembelitria harrisi fits in? Or, is G. harrisi no more in 'use' as workers like Kroon and Nederbragt, (1990), considered G. harissi as a junior synonym of Guembelitria cenomana? Any more information on this would be appreciated!

Dear Dr. Whiso.

Thank you for the kind comments and it is very good to know you find the system useful. G. harrisi is indeed regarded here as a junior synonym of G. cenomana. For cases like this where a species does not appear where you expect it t the best thing to do is to use the search box to look for the species - this should usually allow you to find it.
