The Carterinina, Robertinina, Lagenina, Globigerinina, and Spirillinina were removed form the Rotaliina in the Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology Part C (Loeblich and Tappan 1964) where they were ranked as superfamilies; the Involutinina separated from the Cassidulinacea, the Silicoloculinina from the Litualacea (same).
