Original description: Test free, concavo-convex to unequally biconvex, trochospirally coiled throughout, spiral side evolute, umbilical side involute, with true umbilicus, with or without pseudoumbilicus, peripheral margin rounded to acute, without carina! band. At least each adult chamber drawn out at the periphery into a conical or flask-shaped, tapering extension which may produce a variably oriented true tubulospine, never inflated terminally. The earliest chambers may be subglobular. The surface of the test may be finely hispid. but without rugosities or costellae. Wall structure calcitic, radiate, finely perforate, lamellar. Aperture a low arch, interiomarginal, extraumbilical-umbilical, bordered by a narrow lip, but lacking tegilla.
Family Globotruncanidae; subfamily Rotaliporinae. Cenomanian. Monotypic.
Entries in the Catalog of original descriptions: Hedbergella (Asterohedbergella)
Parent taxon (Hedbergellidae): Test trochospirally coiled, primary aperture interiomarginal, extraumbilical-umbilical, with prominent apertural lip, apertures of earlier chambers remain visible around the umbilical region; no sutural secondary apertures.
This taxon: Test in a low trochospiral coil, early chambers globular, increasing rapidly in size, those of the final whorl pyriform to subconical and may terminate in a tubulospine, resulting in a stellate peripheral outline, umbilical side deeply excavated centrally, sutures radial, depressed, periphery angular but lacking an imperforate carinal band; wall calcareous, radiate, finely perforate, surface smooth to finely hispid but without costellae; aperture a low interiomarginal arch, extraumbilical-umbilical, bordered by a narrow lip.
