Original Description

[Translation from the Russian. - Test high conical, gradually tapering toward the pointed initial end. Its height nearly equal to diameter; consists of three whorls, of which the first two have four semispherical chambers each, and the last has four nearly spherical chambers.

[Test strongly thickened, dorsal side high conical, tapering toward the initial chamber, followed by two whorls with four semispherical chambers in each and one whorl with four nearly spherical chambers. On the ventral side the four spherical chambers of the last whorl are arranged around the umbilicus. Spiral suture depressed. Sutures between chambers narrow, straight, depressed; they are most strongly depressed in the last whorl. Aperture small, curved, in last chamber, opening onto the umbilical side. Wall calcareous, covered with small, dense pits most sharply expressed in the last whorl.

Diameter 0.22 mm.; height 0.23 mm.

Extra details from original publication
[Comparison. - The most variable characteristic of this species is the height of the cone on the dorsal side. Along with forms having strongly pointed conical dorsal sides, specimens are also found with rather blunt apexes and with a lesser thickness of the test; nevertheless, they retain the high conical dorsal side that is characteristic of the genus Globoconusa. In its structure, the present species is close to Globigerina trochoides Reuss, described from the Cretaceous of Bohemia, but differs in the presence of four chambers in each whorl.]
