As decreasing temperature drove the tropical forms south, the more northern must have pressed closely upon them. The northern eocene, or the temperate floras of that period, must...
Page 27 - Test ellipsoidal or ovoid to cylindrical, rounded at the base, slightly produced at the apertural end ; chambers rounded almost as long as broad, arranged in a nearly triserial series, each succeeding chamber removed much farther from the base, rarely becoming almost uniserial in the last chamber; sutures but little depressed, generally distinct; wall smooth, thick, often with fistulose tubes; aperture radiate. Length 0.60 mm.
Page 38 - ... triangular in cross section, early portion tapering, adult portion with the sides nearly parallel and straight : chambers numerous, arranged triserially ; sutures not depressed, often slightly limbate; sides of the test flattened or very slightly concave; peripheral angles rounded; aperture slightly elongate at the base of the inner margin of the last-formed chamber ; wall finely punctate. Length 1 millimeter or less.
