Original Description

Test small, trochospiral, equatorial periphery lobulate, axial periphery broadly rounded; chambers spherical, about 12, arranged in about three whorls, increasing rather rapidly in size, last chamber somewhat protruded in radial direction; sutures rather distinct, depressed, nearly radial on both sides; wall calcareous, perforate, surface pitted; aperture a medium-sized, fairly high, symmetrical arch with a slightly thickened rim, interiomarginal and umbilical in position, placed rightly on opposite sides of antepenultimate chamber. Coiling of the tests is nearly random, but with slight preference to left in direction.

Maximum diameter of holotype 0.26 mm., thickness 0.19 mm. Other specimens range from 0.17 to 0.27 mm. in maximum diameter.

Extra details from original publication
Remarks:  The new subspecies is distinguished from the typical Globigerina druryi by having a larger, high arched aperture with thickened rim instead of thin lip.
Occurrence:  Rather common.

oops. thanks for pointing that, I had copied the typo from Fordham 1986 and not even noticed as I copied data from the original publication...
