Original description: Shell small, similar in external appearance to Globigerinella aspera (Ehrenberg). Spiral low. Whorls 2.5-3.0.First whorl lies below the outer surface of the second or in the same plane. There are 6-7 chambers, or occasionally 8, to the last whorl. Chambers spherical, noticeably increasing in size and lying closely packed together; they are delimited from each other by almost straight, deep sutures. Peripheral margin rounded, slightly undulate, almost smooth. Umbilicus clearly visible, narrow. Orifices slit-like lying between the umbilicus and the peripheral margin, frequently with lips. Walls smooth.
