Original Description

Test moderately compressed, coarsely perforate and roughly finished. The chambers are arranged in a trochoid spire with four chambers in the last whorl. The last chamber in adult forms differs from the foregoing in the more elongate shape and smoother finish. Each chamber bears one aperture, opening in a deep, but rather narrow ventral umbilicus. On the dorsal side the spiral arrangement of the earlier chambers is visible.

Diameter 0.6-0.9 mm.

Extra details from original publication
The species differs from Globigerinoides sacculiferus (Brady) (Brady, 1884, Rept. Chall., p. 604, pl. LXXX, figs. 11-17; pl. LXXXII, fig. 4 [as Globigerina sacculifera]) in the position of the apertures, and the less elongate shape of the ultimate chamber. The species has value as an index fossil for the Oligomiocene."
