Original Description

"This species seems to have been derived from the cretacea-type [Globigerina cretacea d'Orbigny, 1840]; it always shows more than five chambers in the last-formed whorl, and the chambers seem to be more clustered. It has been found in the Pseudotextularia zone, from where it has been described by the author (in press). * *[Apparently a reference to "Die Pseudotextularia- Zone der Bohrune Maasbull 1 und ihre Foraminiferen - Fauna, " which appeared in the Palaontologische Zeitschrift volume 30, Sonderheft, in August 1956. There was however, no reference to a Globigerina supracretacea in that publication although the specific name supracretacea was used by Hofker for a new species of Gaudryina.]
