Original Description
Description. The hemispherical skeleton, without an outer depression, is slightly tapered at the aperture. Thin wall; the surface is tuberculate and rough. Almost all of the numerous, small pores are equal in size and form: they are round and irregularly spaced between the tubercles, which, while merging, form around the pores hexagonal frames with smoothed angular apexes; the lower row consists of smaller and more closely spaced pores. The apical spine has the form of a small, curved, sharp splnule. The wide, round aperture is surrounded by 16 short, flat, wide, smooth apophyses with rectangular distal ends; the apophyses radiate slightly outward. Measurements in µ. Height of skeleton 60µ - 70µ, width 80µ - lOOµ, thickness of wall 6µ - 7µ, diameter of pores 8µ -lOµ, smaller ones 5µ, width of aperture 60y, width of apertural apophyses at the base 6µ - 12µ. G. hemisphaerica Clark et Campbell subsp. siblrlca differs from the typical subspecies (species) in having larger measurements and a thinner wall; it has 16 apertural apophyses instead of 12; the surface of these apophyses is smooth and they curve outward; the pores in our subspecies are not so regularly spaced. Distribution. Upper Eocene of Western Siberia. Irbltsk series of the Tyumensko-Petropavlovsk area and the eastern slope of the Urals.
