Original Description

Test small, trochoid but nearly planispiral, periphery lobate; chambers few, about eight visible on the dorsal side, about four in the last-formed whorl, almost spherical in shape; sutures depressed; wall calcareous, finely spinose, perforate; aperture an almost circular opening on the ventral side not quite centered on the periphery.

This species differs from Globigerina pseudo-bulloides Plummer in the shape of the aperture and the arrangement of the early coil.

Editors' Notes
The original combination is given as Globorotalia danvillensis in some sources (e.g Eocene & Oligocene atlases) but is Globigerina danvillensis according to other sources, including the Ellis & Messina catalog.
