Original Description

Our tow-nets have perhaps in no single instance been dragged down to 200 fathoms without yielding some forms. At times they occur in vast numbers on the surface, and with a bottle can be picked up from a boat. In one specimen thus procured the sarcode of the animal was found thrown out into bubble-like extensions between the spines of the shell, and over these expansions of the sarcode and along the spines the pseudopodia moved freely and rapidly. Mr. Wild has figured this specimen in Plates 22 and 23, and Professor Wyville Thomson proposes to describe it under the generic name of Hastigerina. [Murray 1876, p534]
