Original Description

[Translation from the Russian. - Let us turn our attention to tests present which are very similar to Globigerina moskvini Shutskaya and to small G. varianta Subbotina. As a result of further changes toward the side of greater involution in the upper half of the horizon under discussion (the upper Middle Eocene, Acarinina crassaformis Zone, and basal Upper Eocene) completely involute but asymmetric tests of the Globigerinella type arise, which retain, however, the perforateness of the wall characteristic of the globigerinas, and a compressed chamber shape like that of Globigerina praeglobotruncanaeformis Bykova (figs. 29, 30) (compare fig. 29 with fig. 27 and fig. 30 with fig. 28, respectively, of G. praeglobotruncanaeformis Bykova, 1960). We call this species Globigerina [Globigerinella] praeglobigerinella (although, apparently, a new genus could be distinguished).]
