Original Description

Shape of test a very low trochospiral, spiral side concave, umbilical side strongly inflated; equatorial periphery lobate, early chambers of last whorl with double keel, which may be absent in the ultimate and penultimate chambers. Wall calcareous, perforate; surface in well-preserved specimens slightly rugose, especially on the umbilical side. Chambers globular to hemispherical, twelve to fifteen, arranged in two to three whorls; the four chambers of the last whorl increase rapidly in size, earlier whorls small by comparison. Sutures on spiral side almost radial, depressed; on umbilical side radial, depressed. Umbilicus deep, wide. Primary apertures interiomarginal, umbilical; tegillia with accessory apertures not preserved in Trinidad material, but present in specimens of this species from the Gulf Coast. The twenty-five specimens counted all coiled dextrally.

Dimensions of holotype: diameter 0.4 mm. ; thickness 0.24 mm.


Extra details from original publication
Remarks: In its planoconvex shape, Globotruncana repanda, new species, shows similarities to G. helvetica Bolli, G. gansseri Bolli, G. concavata (Brotzen), and G. ventricosa White. It differs from the last two by having in the last whorl fewer and more inflated chambers,
which are bent upwards on the spiral side. It is usually slightly smaller in size. From Globotruncana helvetica and G. gansseri the new species differs in having two peripheral keels, a more concave spiral side, and a less rugose surface. The stratigraphic range of Globo-
truncana repanda is similar to that of G. ventricosa but differs considerably from that of the other three species.
