Original description: Test either Hantkenina-like or distinctly Globigerina- like, almost planispiral to trochoidal. Chambers of Hantkenina type with axially situated spines, those of Globigerina type rounded peripherally, truncate toward umbilicus. Sutures straight to slightly curved in direction of coiling. Apertures large, arcuate, directed toward umbilicus, occasionally with liplike projections. Umbilicus subcircular, as a rule large, deep, with covering plate. Surface ornamented by rugosities of various size and type, either distributed irregularly or arranged in rows radiating from a central point on the surface toward the aperture (meridional pattern).

Entries in the Catalog of original descriptions: Rugoglobigerina

Distinguishing features: Test in low to flat trochospiral coil of rapidly enlarging globular chambers, biconvex, umbilicate, umbilicus occupying up to one-half the test diameter, periphery rounded, noncarinate; wall calcareous, perforate, surface with pustules, rugosities, and costellae in a meridional pattern; primary aperture interiomarginal, umbilical, with prominent tegilla and large proximal and distal accessory apertures.

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
