Original Description

The calcareous hyaline test is initially coiled in a low trochospiral, later becoming a high trochospiral with an accompanying shift in the axis of coiling. The early chambers are globular, inflated, and globigerine-like. Later chambers are axially (vertically) elongated and are broadly rounded. The early chambers are smooth to irregularly hispid. Later chambers exhibit fine costellae or traces of costellae arranged in a meridional pattern. The aperture is rounded, interiomarginal, and opens into a relatively small but deep umbilicus. Short apertural flaps extend into the umbilicus but do not form a cover-plate.

This genus is named for H. G. Kugler.

Extra details from original publication
Remarks: Kuglerina, n. gen., most closely resembles Rugoglobigerina Brönnimann, but differs from it in being higher spired, having a smaller and deeper umbilicus, and lacking an umbilical cover-plate. It is the ancestor of Bucherina n. gen., but differs from the latter in not possessing an imperforate, peripheral band.

Kuglerina, n. gen., is monotypic, and its genotype should now be called K. rotundata (Brönnimann).
