Original Description

Test large, free, low, trochospiral, almost flat on spiral side, dextrally coiled, equatorial periphery lobate, axial periphery rounded, chambers angular to ovate, 10 to 14 arranged in about three whorls usually five to six in last whorl. Chambers increasing in size in last whorl somewhat irregular; last and penultimate chambers flattened and elongated toward umbilical side, with a steep umbilical face duture depressed, radial to slightly curved on umbilical side; wall calcareous, cancellate, similar to Neogloboquadrina duttertrei (d'Orbigny) usually with thin encrustations. The final and penultimate chambers have pitted microcrystalline surface whereas the early chambers on last whorl near the umbilical shoulder: show some secondary encrustation producing stellate tubercles (fig 5). Umbilicus fairly wide and deep; aperture a low arch, umbilical to extraumbilical, covered with a distinct pointed umbiical plate or tooth.

maximum diameter of holotype (fig. 4)~ 0.6 mm


Extra details from original publication

Remarks. - In the present work the views of Srinivasan and Kennett (1976)  concerning the eogloboquadrina plexus are followed.

In general appearance this subspecies resembles N. dutertrei, but is distinguished by having the chambers on last whorl, which are flattened and elongated towards the umbilical side with a steep umbilical face.

Specimens illustrated by Vincent, Frerichs and Heiman (1974) as Globoquadrina sp. A resemble Andaman Sea specimens and therefore are referable to this subspecies.

Neogloboquadrina dutertrei subsp. andamanica Srinivasan & Azmi, 1977 according to E&M
