NODOPHTHALMIDIUM Macfadyen, 1939
 
 
Type species: Nodobacularia compressa Rhum-bier, 1906 (*2619), p. 38: OD.Nodophthalmidium Macfadyen    1939 (*1965), p. 167. Sarmatiella Bogdanovich, 1952 (*268), p. 217; .type species:Sarmatiella costata Bogdanovich  ,1952 OD ' Foraminella Bogdanovich, 1960 (*269), p. 19 (non Foraminella Sowerby,1835 nec Levinsen,1909); type species:Foraminella obscura Bogdanovich, 1960; OD.
Test elongate, narrow, a globular to ovate proloculus followed by narrow and elongate planispirally enrolled second chamber of one-half to one coil in length, then with a few uncoiled and rectilinear pyriform to flasklike or elongate tubular chambers; wall calcare­ous, imperforate, porcelaneous, thick; aperture terminal and may be somewhat produced, ovate to slitlike, or infolding of the apertural rim in the later stage may produce a triradiate to cruciform opening. Paleogene to Holocene; Adriatic; Mediterranean; USSR: Caucasus, Kuban.
 
Remarks: Although Foraminella was de-scribed as having numerous openings on mamillate projections from the rectilinear chambers, these appear to be parasitic bor­ings, as was noted previously (Loeblich and Tappan, 1964, *1910, p. C456).
