Original Description
Flat double-keeled form, tending to become loosely coiled; wide peripheral band, lobate periphery, chambers (six-seven in the last whorl) inflated on both sides, becoming considerably higher in the last coil and more loosely spaced, whereas in the younger stages they are normally overlapping. The increase in size is irregular in the last coil so that the last chambers are generally smaller or more flattened than the previous ones; senile chambers are frequent. Thin continuously raised sutures, finely beaded in the early stages, occur on the dorsal side. On the ventral side the sutures are radial and depressed; the thickening toward the umbilicus generally weak. Occasionally, one or two of the last chambers show a weak curved sutural elevation. The test is smooth, rougher in the early chambers. The apertural system, as far as could be seen in the last chambers, apparently belongs to the lapparenti type with thin, slightly arched lip projections.

Size: Dimensions of holotype. Width 0.38 x 0.34 mm; thickness 0.15 mm.

Etymology: named after A. W. Nauss, who discovered and named Rugoglobigerina loetterli loetterli.

Extra details from original publication
Remarks. This speies is close to Glt. bulloides bulloides (Vogler) and Glt. bulloides globigerinoides (Brotzen). The last coil, the petaloid chambers, and the irregular increase in size of the last chambers are quite distinctive, keeping on throughout the following mutations toward a Rugoglobigerina form.
