Original description: "Test flabelliform to subcircular, compressed. Six chambers in diminished biserial portion, after which test abruptly flares out, having 35 chambers in multiserial portion. Early chambers in multiserial portion globular, with heavy vermicular ornamentation; later chambers globular to subglobular; fine, closely spaced, longitudinal costae on final series of chambers; 2 chambers in later portion of test sometimes merging to form single, crescent shaped chamber. Sutures depressed, slightly obscured by verimicular ornamentation. Arched, basal aperture on front and back of all but outermost chambers in final row."

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within G. gansseri zone (71.75-72.97Ma, top in Maastrichtian 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
