Extra details from original publication
Remarks: This species resembles Globotruncana intermedia Bolli from the Maestrichtian of Trinidad (1951, p. 197-198, pl. 35, figs. 7-9), but differs in possessing a thicker test and more chambers without striations.

Occurrences of the samples studied: From Ug of the Upper Yezo group of the Haboro area, and the upper part of Uy2 of the Upper Yezo group of the Mombetsu area, both of the Upper Urakawan.
