Description


Diagnostic characters: Low trochospiral, umbilico-convex conical

Aperture: : Interiomarginal umbilical-extraumbilical high arch with rim [Aze 2011, based on Kennett & Srinivasan 1983]


Wall type: Non-spinose; Cancellate [Aze 2011]

Test morphology: Test low trochospiral,flattened to slightly convex spiral side and high vaulted umbilical side, equatorial periphery gently quadrilobate, axial periphery bluntly rounded, chambers angular, conical, 4 in the final whorl increasing slowly in size; sutures on spiral side slightly curved, depressed, on umbilical side sinuous to radial, depressed; surface may be covered by dense pustules on earlier chambers, sparse on final chamber; aperture a distinct high arch bordered by a rim, interiomarginal, umbilical-extraumbilical. [Kennett & Srinivasan 1983]

Biogeography and Palaeobiology


Geographic distribution: Temperate to warm subtropical areas. [Kennett & Srinivasan 1983]

Isotope paleobiology: Aze et al. 2011 ecogroup 3 - Open ocean thermocline. Based on light ∂13C and relatively heavy ∂18O. Sources cited by Aze et al. 2011 (appendix S3): Schneider & Kennett (1996)

Phylogenetic relations: Barbieri (1967) considered Gr. (G.) puncticulata to be closely related to Gr. crassaformis. Stainforth et al. (1975) suggested that Gr. (G.) puncticulata may be a descendant of Globorotalia subscitula, and Berggren (1977b) suggested that its ancestry is from Gr. cibaoensis. Detailed biometric studies of this lineage by Malmgren and Kennett (1981) demonstrate that Gr. (G.) puncticulata evolved in the Early Pliocene from Gr. (G.) conomiozea via Gr. (G.) sphericomiozea and in turn gave rise to Gr. (G.) inflata during the Late Pliocene. Gr. (G.) puncticulata is distinguished from Gr. (G.) inflata by having not fewer than 4 chambers in the final whorl,in exhibiting less inflation, and a smaller aperture. For more detailed information on this lineage, see Malmgren and Kennett (1981). [Kennett & Srinivasan 1983]
