Entries in the Catalog of original descriptions: Rosalina marginata, Globotruncana fresnoensis, Thalmanninella wicheri

Emended description: Test low trochospiral, biconvex; equatorial periphery slightly lobate; axial periphery angular, with two keels separated by a narrow peripheral band which sometimes does not truncate the globular profile of the chambers. Chambers inflated, petaloid, irregularly increasing in size as added on spiral side; trapezoidal, globular on umbilical side; 5-8 chambers in final whorl. On spiral side sutures oblique and depressed to slightly raised. On umbilical side sutures depressed appearing radial,but marked by a largely U-shaped sigmoidal rims. Umbilicus wide and deep. Aperture interiomarginal, extraumbilical-umbilical, with portici. [copied from Chronos database]

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within D. asymetrica zone (84.19-86.71Ma, top in Santonian stage). Data source: [copied from Chronos database]
First occurrence (base): within H. helvetica zone (92.56-93.52Ma, 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
