Diagnosis Test large, up to 30 mm in diameter, low conical to nearly discoidal form, very large apically situated embryonal apparatus with large and broad proloculus that may be irregular in shape, with narrow subembryonic zone, and a supraembryonic zone that is about three times thicker, both sub-and supraembryonic zones subdivided by vertical radial beams projecting inward from the outer wall and by irregular endoskeletal plates similar to the axial zone of the later chambers, embryonal chambers completely surrounded laterally by the first postembryonic chamber, later rectilinear and discoidal chambers extend across the entire lower surface, but latest adult chambers may be only annular, marginal zone very thin but well developed, with both primary radial exoskeletal beams and shorter second order beams, as well as one or more layers of horizontal rafters, the entire thin marginal zone commonly abraded and destroyed in preservation, radial zone may be poorly developed and the chamberlets of this zone in the microspheric test may appear almost rectangular in tangential section, most of the interior consists of a somewhat structureless central complex, with only occasional septa and chambers discernable; wall with imperforate epidermis, marginal zone of fine-grained agglutinated particles and more coarsely agglutinated central complex. L. Cretaceous (U. Albian) to U. Cretaceous (U. Cenomanian); France; Spain; Arabia: Qatar Peninsula. (Loeblich & Tappan, 1987, Foraminiferal Genera and Their Classification) [details]
