Sister taxa: B. sandidgei,


Citation: Bucherina sandidgei Bronnimann & Brown 1956

Taxonomic discussion: Bucherina sandidgei appears to be a late descendant of Archaeoglobigerina of which it differs mainly in the asymmetrical periphery and the presence of one peripheral keel. [copied from Chronos database]

Original description: Bucherina sandidgei Bronnimann & Brown 1956: Test low trochospiral, planoconvex in edge view, often presenting a shift in the axis of coiling in the adult stage. Outline subcircular to lobate, 5 1/2 to 6 slowly increasing in size chambers in the final whorl. Sutures slightly curved depressed between the last formed chambers of the final whorl, slightly raised and lined with a row of pustules between the earlier chambers of the final whorl. Umbilical sutures depresed. Periphery truncated presenting a faint keel mostly developed on the earlier chambers of the final whorl. Chambers flattened dorsally and inflated on the umbilical side. Umbilical diameter approximately 1/4 to 1/3 of the maximum test diameter. Main aperture interiomarginal, umbilical bordered bu a delicate tegilla, successive tegilla leaving both distal and proximal accessory apertures. Test surface presents scattered pustules and papillae lacking meridional arrangement.

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.
