Translation: [A fragment of the frontal segment of one specimen was observed. Frontal lobes 5, arranged subglobosely approximately as in Rotalia, with two median apertures. Apparently very close to B. caput serpentis, but lacks the inflated third segment. Total length 64 µ. (Translated from Latin by E.M.R. and W.R.R.)]
