Original Description

Test with the earliest chambers in the microspheric form planospiral, followed by a series arranged biserially and in the adult by a series ofglobular chambers spread out fan shaped or even partially extending back toward the earlier chambers on either side, the later chambers in a single plane; wall calcareous, perforate.



Extra details from original publication

This genus represents an end form developed from Pseudotextularia Rzehak which in its earlier stages is similar but in the adult has the chambers in a coiling series about the aperturalend. Both genera are characteristic of the Upper Cretaceous of Europe and America.
