Description


Diagnostic characters: Lenticular, low trochospiral, prominent keel and densely perforate surface

Aperture: Interiomarginal umbilical-extraumbilical low-arched slit with distinct lip [Aze 2011, based on Kennett & Srinivasan 1983]


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

Test morphology: Test low trochospiral, compressed, equatorial periphery slightly lobate, axial periphery acute, with thin, keel-like structure, 5 to 5½ chambers in the final whorl, increasing uniformly in size, sutures on spiral side strongly curved; on umbilical side radial to slightly curved, depressed; surface smooth, very finely perforate; umbilicus small, shallow; aperture low-arched slit, with a distinct lip; interiomarginal, umbilical-extraumbilical. [Kennett & Srinivasan 1983]

Biogeography and Palaeobiology


Geographic distribution: Tropical to warm sub-tropical. [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 Sources cited by Aze et al. 2011 (appendix S3): Pearson & Shackleton (1995); D. R. M. Stewart unpublished data

Phylogenetic relations: Gr. (M.) archeomenardii is distinguished from Gr. (M.) praemenardii in being smaller, less lobulate, and in having a more convex spiral side.
Gr. (M.) archeomenardii is the earliest member of the Menardella lineage, which evolved from Gr. (G.) praescitula in tropical waters during the latest Early Miocene. Bolli (1957) was the first to suggest that Gr. (M.) archeomenardii was ancestral to the Gr. (M.) praemenardii-Gr. (M.) menardii lineage. [Kennett & Srinivasan 1983]

Biostratigraphic distribution

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): in upper part of M7 zone (80% up, 13.9Ma, in Serravallian stage). Data source: Wade et al. (2011), additional event; position within zone determined by linear interpolation from data in table 1 of Wade et al. (2011).
First occurrence (base): at base of M5b subzone (0% up, 16.3Ma, in Burdigalian stage). Data source: Wade et al. (2011), zonal marker
