Original Description

Test small, high spired, trochoid; chambers numerous, spherical, three or four in each whorl; sutures distinct, depressed; walls smooth , finely perforated; aperture a low arcuate hole opening into the umbilicus. This aperture is supplemented by several small apertures along the margins of the last two or three chambers added.

Extra details from original publication
Many specimens of this species do not have definite supplementary apertures. When they are absent it has the appearance of a Guembelitria. However, the consistent association of this species with the Globigerinidae suggest that it is pelagic . This fact, together with the occurrence of supplementary apertures, indicates that this species should be placed in the genus Globigerinoides.
