  • according to Hottinger (2006):

EMBRYONIC PSEUDOCHAMBER - ("Zwischenkammer" in Grell, 1954); a hemispherical cavity between the deuteroconch and a third chamber seen on the dorsal side of the shell as hemicircular protrusion.


Remarks: The "true", i.e. lamellar nature of this cavity and its connection with the regular spiral chambers seen in Rotaliellidae (see also Pavlowski et alii, 1992) is not yet known.
