Original Description

see Globorotalia (Hirsutella) for the original description


The name is constructed in honor of Orville Lee Bandy (1917- 1973) for his pioneer and semantic studies in micropaleontology

Extra details from original publication
Bandy (1972:310) in his discussion of the evolutionary lineage of turborotaloids and globorotaloids distinguished three new subgenera of the genus Globorotalia Cushman, 1927. These new planktic subgenera were Fohsella, type-species Globorotalia (F.) praefohsi Blow and Banner, 1966; Menardella, type-species G. (M.) menardii (d'Orbigny, 1826); and Hirsutella, type-species G. (H.) hirsuta (d'Orbigny, 1839). These subgenera have not been widely recognized by foraminiferologists, a fact commented upon by Stainforth et al. (1975:28, 32). Despite this lack of acceptance by the scientific community, the epithet Hirsutella Bandy, 1972, is a junior homonym of Hirsutella Cooper and Muir-Wood, 1951, and consequently requires rejection and replacement under the Law of Homonymy (ICZN Arts. 52, 53, 56).

The name Obandyella is hereby proposed to replace the name Hirsutella Bandy, 1972, non Hirsutella Cooper and Muir-Wood, 1951
