Original Description

This form is similar to G. fornicata ackermanni, but the Rugoglobigerina habitus is more developed. The test is slightly convex, the chambers are inflated, subangular, with the inflation more pronounced on the umbilical side, so that the faintly beaded double keel (narrow peripheral band) is not exactly in the middle of the chamber, but shifted more toward the dorsal side. The chambers, 4-5 in the last whorl, ar slightly more elongated; the sutures bcome radial in the last chambers; the test is rough, especially in the early stages, and the umbilicus is narrower. The test is dextrally coiled.

Dimensions of holotype. Width 0.38 x 0.32 mm.; thickness,0.22 mm.

Extra details from original publication
Remarks. Morphologically it is closely related to Rugogl. hexacamerata hexacamerata, differs because of fewer, more elongate chambers in the last whorl, its more asymmetric umbilical inflation of the chambers. It differs from Rugogl. rugosa rugosa Plummer because of its smaller size, smaller test and less outstanding umbilical convexity of the chambers.

Original name: Globotruncana (Rugoglobigerina) circumnodifer subsp. subcircumnodifer Gandolfi, 1955

Prefer the shorter version.

Yes I prefer the shorter version as well, but I have corrected it.
