Classification: pf_cenozoic -> microperforate -> Cassigerinellidae
Sister taxa: Cassigerinellidae, Chiloguembelinidae, Guembelitriidae, Heterohelicidae, Problematica,
Daughter taxa (blue => in age window 0-300Ma) Granddaughter taxa


Differentiated from other trochospiral planktonic foraminifera by its monolamellar, microperforate wall with a smooth or finely pustulate surface, low trochospiral coiling, and rounded peripheral margin.

NB The short diagnoses are used in the tables of daughter-taxa to act as quick summaries of the differences between e.g. species of one genus. They have initially been copied from the diagnostic characters/distinguishing features sections of the Eocene and Paleocene Atlases, they will be edited as the site is developed.
