STOMATOSTOECHA Applin, Loeblich,and Tappan, 1950
Type species: Stomatostoecha plummerae Applin et al.. 1950; OD.
Stomatostoecha Applin, Loeblich. and Tappan, 1950 (*55), p. 76.
Test discoidal to lenticular, numerous broad and low chambers increasing rapidly in breadth so that the spire increases rapidly in height, coilingplanispiral and incompletely involute, leaving a depressed umbilicus; wall finely agglutinated, imperforate, simple in structure; apertural face high and truncate and may be slightly depressed centrally, aperture a small areal slit in the early stage as seen in thin section, becoming terminal in the expanded and nearly uncoiled later portion.L. Cretaceous (Albian); USA: Texas.
Remarks: Although originally described as having a series of apertural pores, Maync (1972, *2082, p. 356) noted that the septa were compact rather than pierced. Because of the narrowness of the slit aperture, it is not intersected by every section, but a single relatively large slit in the septum is apparent in a number of places in good axial sections.
