Haidar Salim Anan


Abstract: Ten Maastrichtian-Early Eocene diagnostic benthic foraminiferal species from Egypt were recorded and illustrated in this study, for the first time, from Abu Zenima section, west central Sinai of Egypt, but not recorded outside Egypt in other localities in the Tethys. These species are: Höglundina esnaensis (LeRoy, 1953), Eouvigerina aegyptiaca Nakkady (1950), Valvulineria sp. cf. brotzeni Nakkady and Talaat (1959), Eponides mariei Said and Kenawy (1956), Eponides sigali Said and Kenawy (1956), Trochulina aegyptiaca (LeRoy, 1953), Cibicidoides grandis (LeRoy, 1953), Anomalinoides sinaensis Said and Kenawy (1956), Stensiöina esnehensis Nakkady (1950), Angulogavelinella nekhliana (Said and Kenawy, 1956). The paleontology, stratigraphy and paleoenvironment of these species are presented.
