Extra details from original publication
Variability. - The height of the spire and the number of chambers in the last whorl (4.5-5) vary over small limits.
Comparison. - This species differs from Globigerina (Eoglobigerina) tetragona Morozova by the greater number of chambers in the last whorl and the relatively lower spire, from G. (Eoglobigerina) edita Subbotina and G. (Eoglobigerina) theodosica Morozova by the conical form of the spiral side and by the greater height of the test.
