From editor or global species database
Grammatical gender ICZN article 30.1.4.4. stipulates: A compound genus-group name ending in the suffix -ites, -oides, -ides, -odes, or -istes is to be treated as masculine unless its author, when establishing the name, stated that it had another gender or treated it as such by combining it with an adjectival species-group name in another gender form.

Plummer (1945) did not give any indication about the gender of Thuramminoides and the specific epithet "sphaeroidalis" applies to masculine as well to feminine.

Therefore the genus is masculine. [details]
