Original description: Planoglobulina:

Entries in the Catalog of original descriptions: Planoglobulina;

Short diagnosis: Test flabelliform, early biserial stage with rapidly enlarging chambers followed by a proliferation of chambers in the same plane, chambers inflated, subglobular, sutures distinct, depressed; wall calcareous, hyaline, perforate, surface with medium to coarse but discontinuous longitudinal costae that parallel the margins of the chambers, lateral cameral flanges with bordering rims may merge and become continuous ridges on the later chambers; arched basal apertures in the adult commonly at both sides of the multiseriate chambers.

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): within Maastrichtian Stage (66.04-72.05Ma, top in Maastrichtian stage). Data source: Total of range of species in this database
First occurrence (base): within Santonian Stage (83.64-86.26Ma, base in Santonian 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.
