truncatulinoides lineage


Classification: pf_cenozoic -> Globorotaliidae -> Globorotalia -> truncatulinoides lineage
Sister taxa: hirsuta lineage, menardii lineage, truncatulinoides lineage, tumida lineage, temperate Globorotalia species, G. sp.,
Daughter taxa: (blue => in age window 0-800Ma)
truncatulinoides & variants
Like G. truncatulinoides but with a more acute peripheral keel, a more open umbilicus and fewer pustules covering the surface
Like G. truncatulinoides but with more rounded chambers and less conical umbilical side
Like G. truncatulinoides but smaller, with very wide and open umbilicus, and smooth, finely perforate test.
Like G. tosaensis but with a pronounced keel and a more open umbilicus
Low trochospiral, strongly umbilico-convex with flat spiral side, commonly 5 chambers in final whorl
Like G. tosaensis but with sharper curvature and less incision of spiral sutures
crassaformis & variants
Like G. crassaformis but more subquadrangular in equatorial view and final chamber is more reduced
Like G. crassaformis but more rounded peripheral margin and relatively thickened test
No keel & flat spiral side
Like G. crassaformis but has keel and more angular chambers
early species
Like G. crassaformis but with broader, steep axial peripheral outline
Like G. cibaoensis but with more nearly planoconvex test and more strongly angled periphery

Taxonomic discussion: The subgenus Truncorotalia includes species that in most part consist of conicotruncate forms. This lineage includes both non-keeled and keeled forms and thin-walled and thick-walled forms. The Truncorotalia series is one of the important lineages forming the basis for the late Neogene biostratigraphic subdivisions.
Globorotalia (Truncorotalia) crassula, the earliest member of the lineage, seems to have evolved from Globorotalia (Hirsutella) cibaoensis in cool water (temperate-subantarctic area) and this lineage subsequently diversified during the Pliocene (Text Fig. 16) over a wide range of latitude. We have observed gradation between Gr. cibaoensis and Gr. crassula in DSDP Site 281 (Subantarctic). [Kennett  & Srinivasan 1983]

Catalog entries: Globorotalia (Truncorotalia)

Distinguishing features: G. crasula - crassaformis - tosaensis - truncatulinoides lineage, predominantly conicotruncate

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.
