The classification is based upon: Olsson, Richard K. and Usmani, Paarveen A., 1992: UPPER CRETACEOUS FORAMINIFERA IN SANTONIAN TO MAESTRICHTIAN DEPOSITIONAL SEQUENCES IN THE NEW JERSEY COASTAL PLAIN in Centenary of Japanese Micropaleontology, K. Ishizaki and T. Saito eds., p. 301-315 (the naming as Archeoglobigerina seems to be erroneous)
