Morozovelloides n. gen (type species Globorotalia lehneri, Cushman and Jarvis, 1929) is erected to incorporate four keeled species of middle Eocene planktonic foraminifera that have generally been included in Globorotalia or Morozovella in previous studies, but are here regarded as comprising a distinct clade descended from Acarinina. The constituent species are Morozovelloides bandyi (Fleisher, 1974), Morozovelloides coronatus (Blow, 1979), Morozovelloides crassatus (Cushman, 1925) and Morozovelloides lehneri (Cushman and Jarvis, 1929). Their taxonomy, phylogeny and biostratigraphy is reviewed.
