Original Description

Genus of the family Guembelitriidae having chambers globigerine inflated throughout with supplementary sutural apertures. 



Extra details from original publication
Lower Paleogene (Ypresian) to lower Neogene (upper Miocene). Monotypic.

Highly turreted Globigerinoides species, such as Globigerinoides higginsi Bolli, 1957, are in fact Guembelitrias with developed supplementary apertures. They are related to Guembelitria in the same way as Globigerinoides is related to Globigerina, and hence are considered distinct from Globigerinoides, and included in a new genus, here termed Guembelitrioides, with Globigerinoides higginsi Bolli, 1957 as its type species."
