Original Description

Small, but quite robust; slightly elevated dextral trochospire, tight parallel and perpendicular to axis. Equatorial outline slightly oval, weakly lobate; lateral outline weakly compressed, weakly umbilicoconvex. Chambers ovate to globular, closely appressed, over 9 (13?) in total, 5 in final (and second-last?) whorl; increase slow but regular. Dorsal view: chambers slightly longer concentrically, very slightly elevated; sutures very slightly depressed; intercameral sutures radial. Ventral view: chambers moderately inflated; intercameral sutures radial, meet at tight umbilicus; aperture interiomarginal, umbilical-- extraumbilical, low, slightly arched near periphery. Lateral view: smoothly rounded. Wall smooth with sparse blunt pustules and fairly large pores, especially peripherally and suturally on dorsal surface.

Length, 80 µm; width 70 µm; height, 45 µm.

Latin, primoris, first, earliest; second component refers to 'Globorotalia pumilio Parker'.
