Original Description

Test rapidly increasing in breadth, slightly compressed laterally. Periphery roimded. Chambers shghtly inflated, biserially arranged, with their apertural faces not at right angles to the plane of greatest breadth of the test, thus giving the test a twisted appearance. Sutures depressed, slanting. Wall finely spinose. Aperture large, broader than high, surrounded by a transparent collar. One side of the aperture projects more than the other; its position is therefore oblique with regard to the general shape of the test.

Length: 0.23-0.3 mm.; holotype, 0.25 mm.


Extra details from original publication
Remarks: The variability of Chiloguembelina midwayensis strombiformis is illustrated by the text-figures 14, numbers 28-31. It increases more rapidly in size than Chiloguembelina midwayensis midwayensis and has a more spinose wall, more oblique sutures and a broader aperture. It is separated from Chiloguembelina crinita (Glaessner) by the lower, less globular chambers, the slightly coarser spinosity of the wall and the broader aperture.

Occurrence: Lower Lizard Springs formation (Paleocene), Globorotalia pseudomenardii zone (common) and Globorotalia velascoensis zone (rare)
