Hispid globigerinas recorded from the above-mentioned region [North Transylvania] are difficult to be assigned to the one known genus. The morphologic features are far from the genera Muricoglobigerina Blow or Testacarinata Jenkins. With the last one there have been observed some similarities concerning the presence of hispid ornamentation of the test. It differs from Testacarinata in lacking the larger spines in the equatorial area and by the rounded peripheral margin. For this type of globigerina a new genus is proposed.
