Classification: pf_cenozoic -> Globigerinidae -> Globigerinella -> Globigerinella adamsi
Sister taxa: G. adamsi, G. calida, G. radians, G. siphonifera ⟩⟨ G. clavaticamerata, G. molinae, G. navazuelensis, G. obesa, G. praesiphonifera, G. pseudobesa, G. roeglina ⟩⟨ G. megaperta, G. wagneri, G. sp.

Taxonomy

Citation: Globigerinella adamsi (Banner & Blow, 1959)
Rank: species
Basionym: Hastigerina (Bolliella) adamsi Banner & Blow, 1959
Synonyms:
Taxonomic discussion: This is a rare Quaternary species and is not discussed in Kennett & Srinivasan (1983), although they do recognise it as valid species (p.15)

Classified as Bolliella adamsi by Schiebel and Hemleben (2017), but the rarely used, strictly monotypic and phylogenetically unnecessary genus Bolliella is here rejected. [Brummer & Kucera 2022]

Catalog entries: Hastigerina (Bolliella) adamsi, Beella discors

Distinguishing features:
Parent taxon (Globigerinella): Test initially trochospiral, becoming nearly planispiral; globular to ovate chambers; aperture umbilical; fine spines cover the test
This taxon: Near planispiral coiling & digitate chambers

NB These concise distinguishing features statements are used in the tables of daughter-taxa to act as quick summaries of the differences between e.g. species of one genus.
They are being edited as the site is developed and comments on them are especially welcome.
