Original description: The shape of the test of R. praehelvetica is rotaloid, spiral side flattened, about 2.5 whorls constituting the spire, in transverse section the individual whorls are rounded on the spiral side and in some specimens the latter part of the ultimate whorl becomes somewhat angular, with the inner whorls occasionally raised to a common level above the outer whorls. The periphery is lobulate, and the edge is very broadly rounded. There are usually 5-6 chambers in the ultimate whorl that are quite inflated and increase rather rapidly in size as added. Sutures are calcareous, perforate, and with varying degrees of rugosity, but usually only faintly so. The umbilicus is deep and rather wide. Aperture is interiomarginal, opening into the umbilicus and often covered by a platelike extension of the final chamber. About 95% of the studied specimens coil dextrally.

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
