The Fusulinida are a group of Foraminifera known from the Ordovician to the Triassic, characterised by a wall ancestrally composed of microgranular calcite, becoming differentiated into two or more layers in some derived subgroups (Loeblich & Tappan 1964). Early species were often simple with tests divided into few chambers or undivided, but some later lineages became complex and multi-chambered.

The Verbeekinidae are a group of fusulinids known from the Permian, with closely spaced foramina through the bases of all septa. The foramina are bordered by parachomata throughout the test in members of the Upper Permian subfamily Neoschwagerininae; in earlier genera of the subfamily Verbeekininae, the parachomata are discontinuous in earlier volutions of the test, becoming continuous only in later volutions (and throughout the test in later genera of this subfamily). Neoschwagerininae are further characterised by the presence of at least transverse septula, and sometimes also axial septula (Loeblich & Tappan 1964).
