Genera and species of stratigraphycal, ecological and taxonomic importance are systematically reported and figured in the present paper. These include 447 species in 137 genera of foraminifera, 314 species in 95 genera of ostracoda and 85 species in 32 genera of calcareous nannoflora. 3 new genera and 82 new species of ostracoda and 1 new species of calcareous nannoflora are described in detail.
