Extra details from original publication
Remarks.—This genus includes forms which have in the past been variously referred to Globigerina d'Orbigny, Globigerinatella Cushmann and Stainforth and Globigerinita Bronnimann. As here emended, Globigerinita is now restricted to include only forms with a modified final chamber with supplementaiy apertures and the present genus differs in having a distinct umbilical plate with numerous small accessory apertures opening beneath its margin.

Globigerinoita Bronnimann differs in having supplementary apertures on the spiral side which are also covered by small cover plates.

Range.—Miocene to Recent.
