The '''Miliolacea ''' is a superfamily within the [[Miliolina]] (or Miliolida if Foraminifera is a class) that comprises genera with imperforate, porcelaneous, calcareous tests that are coiled, commonly with two, less frequently three or more, chambers per whorl arranged in varying planes about the longitudinal axis. ''Triloculina'' and ''Quinqueloculina'' are good examples. Later in life, tests may become involute or may uncoil. Advanced forms may have secondary partitions within the chambers. Milioaceans are knoown from the Upper [[Triassic]] (Norian) to Recent.
