Original description: Hedbergella:

Entries in the Catalog of original descriptions: Hedbergella;

Short diagnosis: Test trochospiral, wall finely perforate, outer wall weakly to densely covered with perforation cones or perforation ridges (coalescing perforation cones); umbilical and spiral sutures depressed, radial, straight to slightly curved; aperture an interiomarginal extraumbilical-umbilical arch with a thin imperforate rim, rarely with a narrow bordering lip.


Emended description: Huber and Leckie, 2011: Test wall finely perforate, outer wall weakly to densely covered with perforation cones or perforation ridges (coalescing perforation cones), never with an imperforate or keeled peripheral margin or with muricae and rarely with small, blunt pustules. Test small to relatively large in size, coiled in a low to moderately high trochospire with a rounded equatorial periphery, umbilicate; chambers globular to ovate, four to nine in the final whorl; umbilical and spiral sutures depressed, radial, straight to slightly curved; aperture an interiomarginal extraumbilical-umbilical arch with a thin imperforate rim or in rare cases a narrow bordering lip.

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within Albian Stage (100.50-112.95Ma, top in Albian stage). Data source: Total of range of species in this database
First occurrence (base): within Valanginian Stage (133.88-139.39Ma, base in Valanginian 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.
