Original description: Diagnosis.- A medium trochospiral species of Praeglobotruncana with about 5 moderately compressed and slightly lobulated chambers of last whorl.

Description.- Test of medium size, medium trochospiral, equatorial periphery slightly lobulate; chambers initiallly inflated and globigerine-like, later ones becoming petaloidal on dorsal side, trapezoidal in shape on ventral side, about 10 to 12 chambers in all arranged into about 2.5 whorls, enlaraging gradually in size as added, about 5 slightly compressed chambers in final whorl, with a perpheral band formed of an aligned concentration of pustules paralleling periphery; sutures on dorsal side curved, raised and beaded, ventrally radial or slightly curved, depressed; umbilicus shallow and narrow, its width about 1/4 of maximum diameter of test; primary aperture bordered by a wide distinct lip, interiomarginal, umbilical-extraumbilical, extending nearly halfway to periphery; wall calcareous, with marked accumulation of pustules on early chambers.
