Original Description

Globigerinoides praealtiaperturus develops from Globigerina praebulloides praebulloides by the acquisition of a single sutural supplementary aperture on the dorsal side of the adult test. It differs from Gs. primordius in possessing a looser mode of coiling, a wider umbilicus, better separated and less embracing chambers, and a more open and higher arched aperture. This subspecies seems to be the immediate precursor of Gs. altiaperturus which appears during the Early Miocene in other sections of the northern Western Desert (Ouda,1998a). The latter form is distinguished by the rapid increase in size of the last formed chambers , the tightness of the coiling mode, the narrowness of the umbilicus and the presence of additional supplementary apertures on the dorsal side of the earlier part of the test.
