Diagnosis: A species with the characteristics of the genus Ventilabrella with the following peculiarities: The number of chambers is much larger than in the other species of the genus. The two-line part is relatively small. The adult part is very flat compressed.

Description: The test is subtriangular, sometimes wider than high. After a small, only in diaphanous light clearly visible hiserialen beginning part widened it quickly. The adult stage consists of a large number of fan-shaped in a plane arranged chambers. At ¼ height of the case, where this shows its greatest thickness, these chambers are somewhat bloated. The adult chambers are separated by weakly serrated seams, some of which are unclear. The shape of the chambers is irregular. Ornamentation is almost always absent in typical individuals; at most, one occasionally notices a slight longitudinal striation, especially at the more inflated chambers of the thicker chamber portion.

Diagnose : Eine Art mit den Merkmalen der Gattung Ventilabrella mit folgenden Besonderheiten: Die Zahl der Kammern ist viel größer als bei den anderen Arten der Gattung. Der zweizeilige Teil ist verhältnismäßig klein. Der Erwachsenen-Teil ist sehr stark flach zusammengedrückt.

Beschreibung : Das Gehäuse ist subtriangular, bei manchen Eiemplaren breiter als hoch. Nach einem kleinen, nur in durchfallendem Licht deutlich sichtbaren hiserialen Anfangsteil verbreitert es sich rasch. Das Erwachsenenstadium besteht aus einer großen Anzahl fächerförmig in einer Ebene angeordneter Kammern. In ¼ Höhe des Gehäuses, dort, wo dieses seine größte Dicke zeigt, sind diese Kammern etwas aufgebläht. Die adulten Kammern sind durch schwach eingeriefte Nähte getrennt, die teilweise undeutlich verlaufen. Die Gestalt der Kammern ist unregelmäßig. Eine Ornamentierung fehlt bei typischen Individuen fast immer; höchstens bemerkt man gelegentlich eine schwache Längsstreifung, besonders an den stärker aufgeblähten Kammern des dickeren Kammeranteils.

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
