An Additional Note on the Foraminiferal Genus Glaucoammina and Reophax Caribensis

George A. Seiglie, Pedro J. Bermudez


The foraminiferal genus Glaucoammina was described by Seiglie and Bermudez (1969), with Reophax trilateralis Cushman as type-species.  Three different forms of this variable species were included in the original description of the genus.  One of the forms consists of a triserial-uniserial form with an undetermined initial portion. The second form has an initial, slightly twisted, spiral form, that it is interpreted as a trend toward trochospiral.  The third form is the first objective of this note.  It consists of an initial enlarged portion followed by two to three uniserial chambers.
