Entries in the Catalog of original descriptions: Asterohedbergella;

Short diagnosis: Test in a low trochospiral coil, early chambers globular, increasing rapidly in size, those of the final whorl pyriform to subconical and may terminate in a tubulospine, resulting in a stellate peripheral outline, umbilical side deeply excavated centrally, sutures radial, depressed, periphery angular but lacking an imperforate carinal band; wall calcareous, radiate, finely perforate, surface smooth to finely hispid but without costellae; aperture a low interiomarginal arch, extraumbilical-umbilical, bordered by a narrow lip.

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within Cenomanian Stage (93.90-100.50Ma, top in Cenomanian stage). Data source: Total of range of species in this database
First occurrence (base): within Cenomanian Stage (93.90-100.50Ma, base in Cenomanian stage). Data source: Total of range of species in this 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.
