Original description: Diagnose: Espèce du genre Hedbergella, trochospire basse, ouverture principale ombilicale it extra-ombilicale pouvant devenir spiro-ombillcale ; grosses pustules sur les premieres loges du demier tour.

Face ombilicale: Ouverture primaire intériomarginale, ombilicale it extraombilicale, une lèvre plus ou moins large est visible sur les 2 ou 3 dernières loges. Sutures droites, déprimées. 6 à 8 loges subtriangulaires au demier tour. Ornementation: pustules sur les premiéres loges du dernier tour, absentes sur les derniéres. Ombilic peu profond.

Face spirale: Plane à légèrement concave. Chez les formes évoluées à ouverture spiro-ombilicale, ouverture primaire visible et possibilité d'ouvertures résiduelles. Contour lobé. Sutures déprimées, sutures intercamérales radiales it légàrement courbes. Loges globuleuses. Ornementation : pustules plus développées sur les premieres loges du dernier tour. Loges à croissance modérée.

Profll: Trochospire très basse avec tendance à la planispiralit.é Périphérie arrondie. Ouverture primaire basse pouvant devenir spiro-ombilicale.

Emended description: Test low trochospiral, equatorial outline oblate, peripheral margin rounded; wall macroperforate; chambers inflated subtriangular, 7-9 increasing slowly in size as added, muricae on the first chambers of the last whorl; primary aperture from umbilical-extraumbilical to slightly equatorial, sutures straight and depressed on both sides. [copied from Chronos database]

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): in lower part of P. ticinensis zone (30% up, 103.3Ma, in Albian stage). Data source:
First occurrence (base): within P. subticinensis zone (103.94-106.98Ma, base in Albian 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
