Özet

A new species of foraminifer, Turriglomina ? anatolica, n.sp., is erected from the Lower Cretaceous of North-Western Anatolia, Turkey,. The species is characterized by, a well developed meandrospirid stage followed by, a rectilinear, helicoidal stage. The morphology of the new taxon is similar to that of the Triassic genus Turriglomina Zaninetti; however, the generic attribution is doubtful as the evolutionary path of meandrospirids is not documented from Triassic to Cretaceous.
