Original Description
This genus includes species formerly considered to belong to Globigerinoides, having a surface distinctly cancellate, well-developed, deep, conical pores, which sometimes are hexagonal at the surface of the test, separated by inporulated ridge; the last chamber tends to become higher, subglobular or compressed in the spiral plane (branch irregularis - subsacculifera - sacculifera - fistulosa).

Extra details from original publication
Remarks. The genus differs from typical Globigerinoides (the branch obliquus - ruber) in its ultrastructure, in rapidly increasing chambers and the tendency of the last chambers to become higher, subglobular or compressed in the spiral plane, and in the shape of the pores

Editors' Notes
This genus appears to be a senior synonym ot Trilobatus
