In 1983 one of us (JGV) in collaboration with J. Van Hinte described the new foraminiferal species Hyperammina rugosa from the Oligocene of DSDP Hole 345 in the Norwegian Sea. It was also reported from the Eocene at Site 346, Lower Miocene at Site 348, and the Oligocene-Miocene at Site 348 (Verdenius and Van Hinte 1983). The species Hyperammina rugosa was subsequently reported throughout the North Sea, Norwegian Sea, and Barents Sea region (Kaminski and Gradstein 2005). The species has been reported more recently from the Miocene of the Fram Strait region and the Central Arctic Ocean by Kaminski et al. (2005, 2009), from the Upper Cretaceous (Santonian–Campanian) of the southern Norwegian Sea by Setoyama and Kaminski (2015), and from the Upper Cretaceous to Paleogene of the Outer Carpathian region by Bindiu et al. (2019) and by Bubik (2019).
