Current identification/main database link: Globigerinoides ruber (d’Orbigny, 1839)
[We could apply a special name to our examples from the Gulf of Gascony (e.g. Globigerina bulloides, var. rubra, subvar. pyramidalis); but this would give rise to a serious inconvenience: i.e. that the name rubra (typica) would remain applicable to the puny and poorly developed forms illustrated by d'Orbigny, whilst the true type, represented by specimens form the Gulf would be classified at a lower rank.]
I.e van den Broeck regarded the forms with strongly developed pyramidal shape as the true form of rubra and rejected the idea of giving them a different name. Hence the name rubra pyramidalis is a nomen nudum. [my interpretation, following pers. comm. of F. LeCoze - JRY 2019]

Van de Broeck mentionned the name saying he could have named his specimens from the Golfe de Gascogne(but did not)
I found in this publication: http://deepseadrilling.org/15/volume/dsdp15_13.pdf
Globigerina bulloides d'Orb. var. rubra d'Orb. subvar. pyramidalis -
Broeck, E., van den, Ann. Soc. Belg. Micr., 2 (1875-1876), p. 127, pl. 3, fig. 9-10.
Fig.9-10 from pl. 3 (p. 152) are named G. bulloides rubra without subvar. (specimens from the Golfe of Gascogne)
It seems that later authors used this name about species from the Caribbean Sea!!
PS: Please tell me if you want to keep the name.
