Original Description

Diagnosis. The subspecies described is characterized by 4-5 chambers in the last whorl, tending to involute bilateral test structure. The initial 1-2 whorls on the dorsal side are either invisible or slightly visible. The aperture is intraumbilical, extraumbilical extending to the dorsal side.

Description. - The test consists of 2½-3 whorls coiled in a planispiral, the initial 1-2 whorls are usually indistinct on the dorsal side due to which the test becomes almost bilateral. Consequently the form on the one hand surpasses diagnostic characters of the genus Globigerina d'Orbigny 1826, and on the other hand - it does not acquire complete characters of the genus Globanomalina Haque 1956. The last whorl consists of 4-5 slowly enlarging chambers. Dorsal and ventral intracameral sutures are deep, slightly curved. The umbilicus is broad, shallow. The aperture on the base of the last chamber is umbilical - extraumbilical, extending to the dorsal side; on the umbilical side it is provided with a distinct lip extending to the dorsal side. The wall is calcareous, perforate as in Globigerina bolivariana bolivariana Petters, 1954. The latter is connected with the subspecies described by intermediate forms.

diameter 0.3-0.7 mm., height 0.18-0.3 mm.


Extra details from original publication
Remarks. - The subspecies described differs from subspecies nominate Globigerina bolivariana bolivariana Petters in evolute test, in its almost bilateral outlook and in the aperture extending to the dorsal side.
