"Victoriella 'plecte' (Chapman) is synonymous with 'Carpenteria' conoidea Rutten. 'Rhynchospira' abnormis Hantken also belongs to Victoriella. The Carpenteria rotaliformis species-group indicates relationship of Carpenteria to Victoriella and Eorupertia. These genera, together with the new late Eocene pseudoplanispiral genus Maslinella make up the Victoriellidae; Hofkerina is excluded. They show bilamellid wall structure, as described by Reiss. The family originated with Eorupertia (Eocene). Victoriella is rare in the late Eocene and widespread in the Oligocene to Aquitanian." Descriptions of Maslinella chapmani n.g. n.sp. and Carpenteria hamiltonensis n.sp. are included.
