Synonymy Papp and Schmid (1985) put into synonymy the specimens of G. laevigata and G. ovula described by d'Orbigny from the Vienna Basin but not the species described in 1826:
"Glandulina laevigata d'ORBIGNY (non 1826)
Plate 2, figs. 1-6
Valid name: Glandulina ovula d'ORBiGNY
1846 Glandulina laevigata d'ORBIGNY; p. 29, Plate 1, figs. 4,5
Reference material: GBA Nr. 1977/01/3
L o c a l i t y : Baden
Rem.: Glandulina laevigata d'ORBiGNY 1826 (recent) has a
distinctly biserial earlier portion of the test. In G. laevigata
d'ORBiGNY 1846 the biserial test is largely reduced.
Specimens corresponding to the typical G. laevigata have
not been described from the Vienna Basin.
Under G. laevigata d'ORBiGNY understands glandulines
from the clay facies of Baden. This is also confirmed by
the material from vial Nr. 3. The test is glassy, thin-shelled
and broad. Vial Nr. 4 (G. ovula) contains more thickshelled,
larger forms which, according to their state of
preservation, originate from marl and sand facies of Nußdorf-
Kahlenberg. Four specimens from vial Nr. 4 originate,
according to their state of preservation, from Baden.
They display the same dimensions as the large
specimens from Nußdorf.
Data on test dimensions reveal an overlapping of the
associations from the clay and marl facies (Fig. 1). Although
morphological differences between the extremes
are quite distinct, in our opinion significant groups do not
emerge; we therefore unite the two species G. laevigata
and G. ovula, differentiated by d'ORBiGNY, and retain G.
ovula as the valid name.
In complete specimens the aperture is radiate, yet
closed; the pores are relatively small (compare Plate 2,
fig. 6)." [details]
