Citation: Hastigerinoides Bronnimann 1952
taxonomic rank: Genus
Type species: Hastigerinella alexanderi Cushman, 1931
Taxonomic discussion: The generic name Hastigerinoides should be teated as masculine following ICZN Art "A compound genus-group name ending in the suffix -ites, -oides, -ides, -odes, or -istes is to be treated as masculine unless its author, when establishing the name, stated that it had another gender or treated it as such by combining it with an adjectival species-group name in another gender form."
Brönnimann (1952) did not give any indication about the gender of his new subgenus, nor do the two species he included H. alexanderi and H. rohri n. sp. Therefore the general rule applies. [Le Coze 2017 via comment on the website]

Distinguishing features:
Parent taxon (Globigerinelloididae): Test planispiral, chambers globular to radially elongate; aperture at the base of the chamber face and equatorial in position, lateral portions of primary aperture may remain open as new chambers are added, forming relict openings around the umbilical region.
This taxon: Test planispirally enrolled and involute, biumbilicate, early chambers globular and inflated, later ones radially elongate, and those of the final whorl long and tapering, resembling tubulospines; wall calcareous, finely perforate; aperture a low interiomarginal equatorial arch bordered by a distinct lip, lateral part of the aperture remaining open as relict supplementary apertures around the umbilicus on each side as new chambers are added.
