Extra details from original publication
Families included. Abathomphalidae Pessagno, 1967; Globotruncanellidae Maslakova, 1964.

Justification: The superfamily Abathomphaloidea has been defined to accommodate the families Globotruncanellidae Maslakova, 1964, and Abathomphalidae Pessagno, 1967, that form a phylogenetic group already recognized by Robaszynski et al. (1984). Abathomphalidae and Globotruncanellidae have traditionally been included in the superfamily Globotruncanoidea. However, they have an independent origin, probably from rugoglobigerinoids as Archaeoglobigerina Pessagno, 1967 (see Caron, 1985).
