Original Description

Hans E. Thalmann has called my attention to the fact that Plummerella Bronnimann, 1952, a new sub-genus of Rugoglobigerina Bronnimann, 1952 (Bull. Amer. Paleont., vol. 34, Nr. 140, p. 37, with subgenerotype: Rugoglobigerina (Plummerella) hantkeninoides Bronnimann, 1952, from the Maestrichtian of Trinidad, B.W.I.) is a primary homonym of the hemidopteran genus Plummerella DeLong, 1942 (Ann. Entom. Soc. America, vol. 35, p. 200). The substitute name Plummerita nom. nov. is, therefore, proposed for Plummerella Bronnimann, 1952, non DeLong, 1942.
