Original description: This form is similar to G. fornicata ackermanni, but the Rugoglobigerina habitus is more developed. The test is slightly convex, the chambers are inflated, subangular, with the inflation more pronounced on the umbilical side, so that the faintly beaded double keel (narrow peripheral band) is not exactly in the middle of the chamber, but shifted more toward the dorsal side. The chambers, 4-5 in the last whorl, ar slightly more elongated; the sutures bcome radial in the last chambers; the test is rough, especially in the early stages, and the umbilicus is narrower. The test is dextrally coiled.

Plot of occurrence data:

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
