Extra details from original publication
This new form is similar to Globigerina inflata d'Orbigny in its appearance, but differs from it by the last, smaller chamber of which apertural periphery has a characteristic lip. This is fairly common in the adjacent seas of Japan.

Occurences: A table of 30 occurrences from around Japan is given (p18), with abundances recorded as common to rare.
