Daughter taxa: (blue => in age window 0-800Ma) Granddaughter taxa
Alicantina


Acarinina
Moderate to low trochospire; chambers ovoid, usually 4-6 in final whorl.
Wall muricate with pustules on umbilical shoulders;

Praemurica
Test very low trochospiral, usually 5-6, globular to oval chambers in last whorl, periphery lobulate;
Wall non-spinose, weakly cancellate;

Test biconvex
Igorina
Test small, biconvex, evolute, margin narrowly rounded or angular, sometimes with a keel; 5-6 chambers in final whorl
Wall, coarsely cancellate, praemuricate, often pustulose.

Pearsonites
small Morozovellids with biconvex–planoconvex tests with an overall rounded periphery

Planorotalites
Biconvex, keeled test with densely perforate surface

Astrorotalia
Low trochospiral test with keel-spines

Test plano-convex
Morozovella
Test typically plano-convex, chambers strongly anguloconical.
Wall strongly pustulose (muricate) on parts of spire and umbilicus. Most species with muricocarina.

Morozovelloides
Like Morozovella, but derived from Acarinina.

Taxonomy

Citation: Truncorotaloididae Loeblich and Tappan, 1961
Rank: Family
Taxonomic discussion: This family tentatively includes Acarinina, Igorina, Morozovella, and Praemurica. As discussed in "Phylogeny," there are two views among the working group members on the relationships between these genera (see Figure 5a, b). The use of this family appears appropriate, for the time being, until these differences are resolved. [Olsson et al. 1999]

Catalog entries: Truncorotaloididae

Distinguishing features: Muricate

NB These concise distinguishing features statements are used in the tables of daughter-taxa to act as quick summaries of the differences between e.g. species of one genus.
They are being edited as the site is developed and comments on them are especially welcome.
