Original Description

Shape of test moderately to distinctly trochospiral; equatorial periphery distinctly lobate. Wall calcareous, perforate, surface smooth to very finely pitted. Chambers spherical to ovate; about 12, arranged in about 3 whorls; the 3-4 chambers of the last whorl increase rapidly in size. Sutures on spiral side curved to radial in the early stage, radial in the last whorl, depressed; on umbilical side radial, depressed. Umbihcus very small. Aperture a low elongate slit, often with a thin lip; iateriomarginal, umbilical. Coiling random. Largest diameter of holotype 0.29 mm.

Extra details from original publication
Stratigraphic range (in Cipero and Lengua formations) : Globorotalia kugleri zone to Globorotalia menardii zone.

Remarks : Globigerina juvenilis, new species, appears to be related to G. bradyi Wiesner, but is less distinctly trochospiral. Transitional forms between the two species may be observed. It is also possible that Globigerina juvenilis represents the juvenile stage of Globigerinita naparimaensis Bronnimann, where the bulla is not yet developed (for comparison see Bolli, Loeblich and Tappan, 1957, pi. 8, figs. 1a-c).
