Original description: Falsotruncana douglasi Caron 1981: Translated from French: Diagnosis: Transitional form, still closely related to Hedbergella hoelzli Hagn et Zeil, its ancestor. Chambers of the spiral side very pustulose and inflated. Two rows of thick pustules present on the edges of a narrow poreless carinal band, except for the two last chambers. All the other characteristics are as in the genus.

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.
