Original description: Test very small (major diameter up to 0.17 mm), low-spired. Spiral side of test flat, umbilical side concave. Outline rounded. Test consists of approximately 2 whorls, containing 11-13 chambers. In the first whorl are 5 chambers, in the second 5.5-6. Number of chambers in last whorl also fluctuates between 5.5 and 6. All chambers are spherical. Chambers gradually increase in size as added. Test surface smooth. Septal sutures linear, depressed, straight. Umbilicus broad, deep, aperture equatorial, lips not observed.

Entries in the Catalog of original descriptions: Clavihedbergella primare

Emended description: Test medium sized, coiled in a very low trochospire; 2 to 2.5 whorls; 6 to 7 chambers in the outer whorl increasing gradually and slowly in size as added; chambers globular to subglobular, the last two or three becoming slightly reniform in lateral view and subtriangular in umbilical view; equatorial periphery circular to subcircular, lobate; sutures depressed, radial mainly straight; umbilical area rather wide and shallow; aperture as a low to medium arch bordered by a lip. Wall smooth, finely perforate. [copied from Chronos database]

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within G. algerianus zone (118.93-122.17Ma, top in Aptian stage). Data source: [copied from Chronos database]
First occurrence (base): within G. blowi zone (125.71-128.73Ma, base in Barremian stage). Data source: [copied from Chronos 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
