Original description: Diagnosis.- A low trochospral species of Praeglobotruncana with compressed and wedge- shaped chambers in last whorl.

Description.-Test of medium to small size, very low trochospiral, equatorial periphery slightly lobulate; chambers wedge-shaped on dorsal side, triangular and slightly inflated on ventral side, about 10 chanbers in all, enlarging rapidly in size as added, about 4.5 chambers in last whorl, with a peripheral band formed of aligned pustules; final chamber occasionally obliquely shifted toward umbilical direction; chambers in last whorl diagnostically elongated toward spiral direction; sutures on dorsal side gently curved, depressed, ventrally radial or slightly curved and depressed; umbilicus shallow, medium in size, about 1/3-1/4 of maximum diameter of test, umbilical flaps extending into an umbilicus from each chamber; primary aperture bordered by a narrow lip, interiomarginal, umbilical-extraumbilical; wall calcareous, earlier chambers pustulated.
