Entries in the Catalog of original descriptions: Radotruncana;

Short diagnosis: Test trochospiral, planocovex with flattened spiral side and strongly convex umbilical side, chambers rhomboidal in section, the five to seven chambers of the final whorl each with a tubulospine at the proximal end of the chamber and in the plane of the spiral surface, less frequently a tubulospine may arise at the junction of two adjacent chambers, tubulospines increasing in size and length by lamellar growth, so that earlier ones of the final whorl may be larger than the later ones, umbilicus wide, up to one-half the test diameter, sutures radial to curved, depressed to slightly elevated and may be nodose, periphery with a single keel, peripheral outline polygonal; wall calcareous, densely perforate, surface smooth or with pustules covering the surface of early whorls and present along the sutures and peripheral keel; primary aperture umbilical, bordered by a large flat porticus, those of successive chambers imbricated within the umbilicus and may partially fuse.

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within Maastrichtian Stage (66.04-72.05Ma, top in Maastrichtian stage). Data source: Total of range of species in this database
First occurrence (base): within Campanian Stage (72.05-83.64Ma, base in Campanian stage). Data source: Total of range of species in this database

Plot of occurrence data:

NB Plotting of Neptune data has been disabled on the Mesozoic pages because the dataset is both small and badly affected by a few sites with erroneous age models (our obs Huber, Petrizzo, Young, Nov 2016). The data can still be viewed via the range plottertool - tools menu.
