Abstract

Deep-water agglutinated foraminifera in the flysch troughs of Romania occur in Upper Cretaceous sediments containing planktonic foraminifera, which enables a direct correlation between the agglutinated foraminiferal zonation of Geroch and Nowak (1984) and the standard planktonic foraminiferal zones. In Romania, Geroch and Nowak’s Upper Cretaceous biostratigraphy of flysch sediments is supplemented by the characteristic ranges and acmes of additional taxa. The following new taxa are described: Haplophragmoides falcatosuturalis n.sp., Gerochammina n.gen, Gerochammina stanislawi n.gen.n.sp., Gerochammina obesa n.gen.n.sp., and Uvigerinammina praejankoi n.sp.
