Globigerina khadumica

Citation: Globigerina khadumica Bykova 1960
Rank: species
Type locality: southern Mangyshlak, Kazakhstan
Type age (chronostrat): lower Oligocene (Rupelian), Globigerinella liverovskae Zone (PG1a-3)

Current identification/main database link: Tenuitella gemma (Jenkins 1966)

Original Description
Somewhat higher up Globigerinella liverovskae is found in very small quantities, and five-chambered tests with a more evolute dorsal side of the Globigerina pseudobulloides Plummer or Globigerina infracretacea Glaessner type appear which we call Globigerina khadumica (Figs. 4-7). Between these tests and the preceding species, G. liverovskae, there are transitional types (fig. 4).

Editors' Notes
No holotype or repository was given by Bykova; this species has been considered as a junior synonym of Globigerinella liverovskae Bykova by Samuel and Salaj (1968, q.v.; see also liverovskae below; nomen dubium non conservandum). [Berggren & Wade 2018]
