Original Description

All chambers visible on the dorsal side, only those of the last whorl visible on the ventral side, reaching almost to the center but leaving a small umbilical cavity free. Chambers fairly inflated toward both sides, increasing slowly in length, with a ratio of 1.1 or 1.2 : 1 between successive chambers. Surface smooth; pore-index 5-1.5, X 500 (an average of five pores per square centimeter, with an average diameter of 1.5 mm, at a magnification of 500X). Aperture a narrow opening at the umbilical cavity. This species somewhat resembles Globigerina triloculinoides Plummer, but differs from topotypes of that species in the total lack of any honeycomb ornamentation.

Test of medium size, the diameters 0.42 mm. and 0.36 mm., thickness 0.24 mm.
