Globigerinella digitata (Brady, 1879)

This rare species (Fig. 10) occurs in low and mid latitudes with no clear preferences for physical conditions related to the sea surface. Hemleben et al. (1989) suggest a possible restriction of this species to the deeper water which may be supported by the well defined relation of its relative abundance with temperatures at 200 m.
