This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ...7, fig. 14. Description.--"Test elongate, subtriangular, quinqueloculine; peripheral margins of the segments sharp, with a tendency to become carinate; the surface of the chambers traversed by somewhat oblique transverse ridges or crenulations. "Length, one twenty-fifth inch (1 mm.)." Distribution.--This species seems to be, as noted by Brady, essentially a coral-reef species. In his tables of distribution he includes it from Challenger station 260A, in 40 fathoms off the coral reefs of Honolulu, Hawaiian Islands. Bagg also records it from this same region, Albatross D4000, in 104 to 213 fathoms, H4566, in 572 fathoms, and H4694 in 865 fathoms. Rhumbler records it from Laysan Island, a single specimen. I have examined Bagg's mounted material from the Hawaiian Islands, and it appears to be typical. In the material I have had from this same region I have found it but once, in material from Nero station 2039, in 24 fathoms. Typical specimens occur in shallow water material from Apra Bay, Guam, and from Gaspar Straits. QUINQUELOCULINA FERUSSACH d'Orbigny. Plate 19, figs. 3, 4. Quinqueloculina ferussacii D'orbigny, Ann.
