Original Description
Globigerinoides praesubquadratus develops from Globigerina brazieri Jenkins by the rapid increase in the size of chambers of the last whorl as added and by the acquisition of a sutural supplementary aperture at the base of the dorsal side of the ultimate chamberis. It is distinguished from Gs. subquadratus by its possession of only one sutural supplementary aperture on the dorsal side of the adult test, and by having a very restricted stratigraphical occurrence. Globigerinoides subquadratus is stratigraphically younger and seems to represent a highly evolved member of the lineage Gg. brazieri-Gs. praesubquadratus. Globigerinoides praesubquadratus differs from Gs. primordius by having a fewer, more inflated, rapidly increasing chambers in the last whorl and in possessing a more highly arched primary aperture.
