Description. — Test many chambered, triserial, at least in the early portion, tapering; apertures numerous, scattered over the terminal wall of the chamber; other walls also porous. This genus includes two species, one a fossil from the cretaceous of the Vienna basin, the other a very rare recent species occurring in shallow water in the warmer portion of the...
Page 93 - D4025, in 275-368 fathoms, near the Hawaiian Islands. A study of the type specimen seems to place the species rather as related to V. subsquamosa Egger rather than to V. squamosa d'Orbigny as here considered. It may be a good species, but further material is desirable for study before this can be determined. VIRGULINA SUBDEPRESSA HB Brady. Virgulina subdepressa HB BRADY, Rep. Voy.

Page 96 - Test subcircular, but oval in outline, biconvex, the peripheral border broadly rounded; chambers comparatively few, short, and inflated; wall calcareous, perforate, smooth; sutures distinct, somewhat depressed; aperture a long, narrow slit just below and nearly parallel to the periphery of the test, often with a long tooth partially filling the aperture; color white or light brown. Length 0.60-1.00 mm.
Page 89 - Test coiled in a depressed spire, umbilicate, the chambers numerous, slightly inflated; sutures distinct, slightly depressed; wall smooth, calcareous; aperture distinctly bulimine, loop-like, rather long and narrow, extending to the umbilicus; color white. Diameter about 0.75 mm. Distribution. — Recorded by Brady from the Hyalonema-ground, south of Japan, in 345 fathoms, and by Bagg from three Albatross stations near the Hawaiian Islands, D4000, H4430, and H4555, in 104-1,544 fathoms.
Page 89 - IX, figs. 445-453. Description. — Brady's description of this species follows : Test elongate-ovate, tapering to a blunt point at the initial extremity, rounded at distal end ; consisting of from two to three more or less regular oblique convolutions. Chambers relatively large and only slightly ventricose externally; sutural lines very distinct. Aperture a curved slit near the inferior umbilical margin of the terminal chamber, considerably removed from the distal end of the test.
