Three species of agglutinated foraminifera from Cretaceous deep-water deposits that have been described as trochamminids are here transferred to the genus Ammogloborotalia ZHENG, 2001. These species are Trochammina abrupta GEROCH, 1959; Trochammina quinqueloba GEROCH, 1959, and Ammoanita globorotaliaeformis Gradstein and Kaminski, 1999. A fourth species, Ammogloborotalia sp.1, which is probably a new species from the Turonian of the southern East Carpathians of Romania is reported here for the first time. We hereby extend the known stratigraphic range of the genus Ammogloborotalia to the Late Jurassic (Tithonian).
