•New genetically divergent ecotypes of planktonic foraminifera identified in Arabian Sea.•Genotype divergence and ecology highly suggestive of species level distinction.•Global upwelling systems have different genotype assemblages.•Regional geochemical calibrations recommended for local paleoenvironmental study.
