Extra details from original publication
This species ranges throughout the Telisa and Transitional Zone shales and is usually found in appreciable numbers. The species is related to Globigerina tripartita Koch, but differs by being more convex dorsally, having a slight apertural lip and by showing a higher spiral coil. It is also on the average somewhat smaller than Globigerina tripartita Koch.
