Extra details from original publication
Remarks - Tenuitellinata selleyi differs from other tenuitelline species in having a small test, a smooth wall, and a low-arched, anteriointraumbilical aperture. In size, it is closely related to Ti pseudoedita. The partially smooth wall may represent an iterative phenomenon, being typical of the Eocene Praetenuitella, because all other Oligocene-Miocene tenuitellids have been described as pustulate (Li, 1987).
Distribution - Tenuitellinata selleyi occurred in the lower middle Miocene of Hole 747A.
