Original description: Test wall microperforate, pore diameter ranging 0.4 to 0.8 microns, surface smooth or with very fine pustules. Test very small, coiled in a low to rarely moderate trochospire, equatorial periphery moderately to strongly lobate, unequally biconvex, test thickness:diameter ratio averaging 0.61; chambers inflated, dextrally or sinistrally coiled in 1.5 to 2 whorls of 6 to 8 chambers that increase rapidly in size with 3 to 4 chambers in the final whorl, ultimate:penultimate ratio averaging 1.1, final chamber slightly reniform; sutures depressed, radial, straight; umbilicus shallow, narrow; aperture an extra-umbilical low arch that extends from near the peripheral margin nearly to the umbilicus, bordered by a narrow lip.

Entries in the Catalog of original descriptions: Microhedbergella miniglobularis

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within M. renilaevis zone (112.96-113.14Ma, top in Aptian stage). Data source: [copied from Chronos database]
First occurrence (base): near top of P. rohri zone (91% up, 113.7Ma, in Aptian stage). Data source: zonal marker (from Timescale Creator)

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
