Belongs within: Loeblichiidae.

The Schubertellidae are a group of minute fusulinids known from the Upper Carboniferous and Permian (Loeblich & Tappan 1964).

Characters (from Loeblich & Tappan 1964, as Schubertellinae): Shell minute, elongate-fusiform, ellipsoidal or irregular in shape, first few volutions coiled at large angle to outer ones; spirotheca composed of (1) tectum with upper and lower tectoria or (2) tectum with diaphanotheca and tectoria, or (3) tectum with lower layer only, or (4) consisting of single thin layer; septa plane in primitive forms, fluted in end zones of more advanced forms, and fluted throughout length of shell in some advanced members; tunnel singular; chomata small or distinct.
