Distinguishing features:
Parent taxon (Turborotalita): Minute, with bullate extension of the final chamber, smooth wall, large pores and short conical spines concentrated along the periphery.
This taxon: Six or more 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.

Description


Wall type: Spinose; Cancellate [Aze 2011]

Morphology: Test minute, low trochospiral, equatorial periphery almost circular, lobulate; axial periphery rounded; si6x subspherical chambers in the final whorl, increasing uniformly in size as added; tongue-like extension of the final chamber over the umbilicus having several infralaminal apertures; sutures radial and depressed; surface smooth, very finely perforate , larger pores concentrated along the periphery; aperture (except when covered by bulla) interiomarginal, urnbilical-extraumbilical. [Kennett & Srinivasan 1983]

Size: <150µm

Biogeography and Palaeobiology


Geographic distribution: Tropical to warm subtropical. [Kennett & Srinivasan 1983] Low latitudes [Aze et al. 2011, based on Kennett & Srinivasan (1983)]

In modern oceans a common, temperate water, species [SCOR WG138]


Isotope paleobiology: Aze et al. 2011 ecogroup 2 - Open ocean mixed-layer tropical/subtropical, without symbionts. Based on ∂13C lighter than species with symbionts; also with relatively light ∂18O. Sources cited by Aze et al. 2011 (appendix S3): this study

Phylogenetic relations: Ta. humilis is distinguished from Globigerina (Globigerina) quinqueloba by its smaller size, more numerous chambers in the final whorl, and microperforate wall and larger pores concentrated along the periphery. [Kennett & Srinivasan 1983]

Most likely ancestor: Turborotalita quinqueloba - at confidence level 3 (out of 5). Data source: Aze et al. 2011. NB Kennett & Srinivasan 1983, showed origin from Tenuitella clemenciae in fig. 18 bt in the text mentioned close similarities to T. quinqueloba .
Likely descendants: Turborotalita cristata; plot with descendants

Biostratigraphic distribution

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): Extant Data source: present in the plankton (SCOR WG138)
First occurrence (base): in upper part of M14 [Atl.] zone (78% up, 5.8Ma, in Messinian stage). Data source: Wade et al. (2011), additional event; position within zone determined by linear interpolation from data in table 1 of Wade et al. (2011).
