Extra details from original publication
Remarks. - Schackoinella tricamerata differs from Schackoinella sarmatica in having only three chambers on the umbilical side and in showing a rapid increase in the size of chambers with growth. The authors have critically examined the wall structure of this species and have found it to be distinctly radial. Considering the trochospiral coiling as well, the authors favour its placement with the Glabratellidae, as suggested by Loeblich and Tappan (1964, in: Moore (Ed.), Treatise on Invertebrare Paleontology. New York: Geol. Soc. Amer., pt. C, Protista 2, vol. 2, pp. C587, C591).
