Original Description

Test free, planispiral, biumbilicate, partially evolute, equatorial periphery lobate, axial periphery rounded. Chambers 8 to 10 in final whorl, equatorially flattened, increasing gradually in size, final chambers generally ovate, ultimate chamber often reduced in size. Sutures distinct, depressed radial, straight to gently curved. Wall calcareous, finely perforate, surface pustulose on early chambers of final whorl, final few chambers nearly smooth. Aperture a broad, low, interiomarginal, equatorial arch, pordered above by a narrow lip. Relic apertures and relic apertural flaps distinct. From Ellis & Messina: "Test free, planispiral, biumbilicate, partially evolute, equatorial periphery lobate, axial periphery rounded. Chambers 8 to 10 in final whorl, equatorially flattened, increasing gradually in size, final chambers generally ovate, ultimate chamber often reduced in size. Sutures distinct, depressed radial, straight to gently curved. Wall calcareous, finely perforate, surface pustulose on early chambers of final whorl, final few chambers nearly smooth. Aperture a broad, low, interiomarginal, equatorial arch, bordered above by a narrow lip. Relic arpertures and relic apertural flaps distinct. "Largest diameter of holotype 0.32 mm. Paratypes range from 0.28 to 0.43 mm. "Remarks. - This large plantonic species characterized by the numerous flattened chambers occurs consistently in the late Campanian smaples of Leg 36. Globigerinelloides impensus Sliter somewhat resembles Globigerinelloides alvarezi (Etemod Olvera) [Planomalina alvarezi, 1959] originally described from the Campanian-Maestrichtian of Mexico. It differs, however, in the larger size, compressed test, slightly curved sutures, and less highly arched aperture. "The new species differs from Globigerinelloides bolli Pessagno in its larger size, more numerous, more compressed chambers, gently curved sutures, and pustulose surface."
