Original Description

Shape of test very low trochospiral; equatorial periphery distinctly lobate, axial periphery rounded. Wall calcareous, perforate, surface smooth or very finely pitted. Chambers spherical; about 12, arranged in about 2½ whorls; the 4-5 chambers of the last whorl increase moderately to fairly rapidly in size. Sutures on spiral side depressed, radial; on umbilical side depressed, radial. Umbilicus small. Aperture a medium to low arch; interiomarginal, umbilical, often with a thin lip. Coiling random.

Largest diameter of holotype 0.24 mm


Extra details from original publication
Remarks: Globigerina ciperoensis angustiumbilicata, new subspecies, is distinguished from G. ciperoensis ciperoensis by having a small umbilicus. The aperture, which is umbilical in position, may in some specimens show a tendency towards an umbilical—extraumbilical position.

Stratigraphic range (in Cipero formation): Globigerina ampliapertura zone to Catapsydrax dissimilis zone.

Thank you for pointing this out. You are doubtless correct but the reason the information is currently missing from the site is that a comprehensive monograph on Oligocene planktic foraminifera is currently in press. As soon as this published a very large set of content from it will be incorporated into the website, as agreed with the publishers and all authors. However, in advance of this Oligocene taxa have only been included in the catalog not in the main database and even putting links to modern names is not practicable.
