Original Description

Translation from the Russian. - Test highly trochoid, with a subtriangular lateral outline. Spiral side high, conical, umbilical side flattened or concave in the center, with a narrow deep umbilicus. Spire formed hy two to two and a half whorls, freely lying one on top of the other. In the last whorl are three to three and a half in flated subspherical chambers. In the early whorls of microspheric forms there are five chambers. Sutures deep. Aperture semicircular around the umbilicus, often with a slit-shaped prolongation from the umbilicus to the outer margin. Wall smooth, finely perforate. Surface lustrous or matte.  

Greatest diameter 0.25, least diameter 0.24, height 0.21 mm.

Extra details from original publication
Variability. - The number of chambers in a whorl (3 -3.5) and the height of the spire are not constant; in three-chambered tests the spire is high, and in tests with three and a half chambers it is lower. Three-chambered forms obviously belong to the microspheric generation, and three-and-a-half-chambered forms to the megalospheric generation.

. - From the near species Globigerina (Eoglobigerina) triangularis White this one differs by its higher spire.
