Original description: Das Gehäuse ist im allgemeinen gross, 0,5—0,6 mm, gegenüber der Stammform vergrössert und stark komprimiert; die Kammern sind breit und flach. Besonders bei den äussern Kammern liegen die beiden peripheren Kiele nahe beisammen und scheinen sich, wie in vereinzelten Fällen beobachtet wurde, sogar scheinbar zu einem einzigen zu vereinigen. Die Subspezies entspricht dem von de Lapparent (Lit. 71) gegebenen "type 4, en couronne de feuilles".

Entries in the Catalog of original descriptions: Globotruncana lapparenti coronata

Emended description: Translated from German: The test is usually large, 0.5-0.6 mm, larger than the "principal form" (main / original species?) and much compressed; the chambers are broad and flat. Especially on the outer chambers the two peripheral keels lie close together and even seem to merge to a single one, as observed in a few cases. The subspecies is identical to the "type 4, en couronne de feuilles" given by de Lapparent (1918). [copied from Chronos database]

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within G. elevata zone (79.20-84.19Ma, top in Campanian stage). Data source: [copied from Chronos database]
First occurrence (base): within D. concavata zone (86.71-89.91Ma, base in Turonian 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

    Thank you for good site.I saw new species in my study in Iran of the cretaceous. would you like see them?

    God to hear you are finding the site useful. Brian Huber is the expert on Certaceous planktonics so I have forwarded your query on new species to him.

    best wishes
