Original Description Test distinctly trochospiral with 11-12 chambers arranged in about 2½ whorls and with 4-5 chambers in the last whorl; chambers subspherical to ovate but sometimes rather appressed and also slightly compressed laterally; equatorial periphery lobate; equatorial profile subcircular; axial periphery rounded; sutures of the spiral and umbilical sides radial and depressed; umbilicus rather small but deep; aperture a rather small arched opening with a distinct umbilicial tooth; in the adult generally interiomarginal, umbilical, but in some specimens (Pl. 10, fig. 55) interiomarginal, umbilical-slightly extraumbilical; apertures of the early chambers and in juvenile specimens distinctly interiomarginal, umbilical-extraumbilical; wall calcareous, coarsely perforate and often rather rough to slightly spinose; Size: maximum diameter of holotype, 0.28 mm. Extra details from original publication Remarks: This species shows a distinctly interiomarginal, umbilical-extraumbilical aperture in the early chambers which becomes generally interiomarginal, umbilical in the adult. The umbilical teeth, although small, are distinct. The sutures are usually distinct, notwithstanding the rather appressed and laterally compressed chambers seen in some specimens. Globoquadrina pozonensis is distinguished from Globoquadrina altispira globosa Bolli by the rather more appressed chambers, rehitively smaller umbilicus, relatively smaller aperture and consistently smaller test and by the coarsely perforate and rather rough wall. Occurrence: Ranges from the Globorotalia mayeri/Globigigerina nepenthes Subzone to the Globigerina bulloides Zone, Pozon formation.
