Diagnosis Test ovate in outline, periphery broadly rounded, chambers one-half coil in length, early stage cryptoquinqueloculine, later with planes of coiling increasing to 180¡ to become approximately planispiral or very slightly sinuate as seen in section, chambers lack a floor and broadly overlap preceding chambers so that only two to three are visible from the exterior; wall calcareous, imperforate, porcelaneous; aperture large, rounded, at the end of the final chamber, may be bordered with a thick rim and provided with a protruding bifid tooth. M. Eocene (Lutetian) to Holocene; cosmopolitan. (Loeblich & Tappan, 1987, Foraminiferal Genera and Their Classification) [details]
