Type species: Rhizammina globigerinifera Hofker, 1930 (*1492), p. 117; OD.
Testulorhiza Avnimelech, 1952 (*97), p. 66.
Test elongate, tubular, up to 25 mm in length, rarely may branch dichotomously, commonly with short lateral branches arising at irregular intervals and open terminally; wall organic, flexible, main tube with agglutinated tests of other foraminifera on the surface, but lateral branchlets have almost no agglutinated material, hence in dried material are collapsed or almost entirely destroyed; apertures at the open ends of the lateral branches. Holocene; S. Pacific: Ceram Sea, at 2,081 m.
