Citation: Globigerinelloides asper (Ehrenberg, 1854)
Rank: Species
Basionym: Phanerostomum asper
Synonyms: Globigerinella abberanta; Globigerinella japonica; Planomalina mauryae; Planomalina rowei
Taxonomic discussion: Bronnimann (1952) says this taxon should not be used owing to its confused taxonomy; original illustrations and description of this species are inadequate. But Pessagno (1967) designated a lectotype and Masters (1977) illustrated topotypes. Occasionally biapertural. [copied from Chronos database]

Emended description: Pessagno, 1967, p. 274-275: "Test small, hispid, planispiral consisting of two whorls ; six chambers in the last whorl. Chambers expanding moderately rapidly in size as added. Aperture interiomarginal, equatorial in position, a highly arched rounded opening bordered by a thick lop. Outer wall radial hyaline perforate; septal wall microgranular hyaline, perforate.

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within A. mayaroensis zone (67.30-69.18Ma, top in Maastrichtian stage). Data source: [copied from Chronos database]
First occurrence (base): within D. concavata zone (86.71-89.91Ma, base in Turonian stage). Data source: [copied from Chronos database]

Plot of occurrence data:

NB Plotting of Neptune data has been disabled on the Mesozoic pages because the dataset is both small and badly affected by a few sites with erroneous age models (our obs Huber, Petrizzo, Young, Nov 2016). The data can still be viewed via the range plottertool - tools menu.
