Abstract

A fauna containing both larger and planktic smaller foraminifera has been found in two samples from New Ireland, Papua New Guinea. The planktic foraminifera indicate an age within the N.II-N.12 zonal interval; a new species, Globigerina edita, is proposed. The larger foraminifera consist mainly of lepidocyclinids, referred to the species Lepidocyclina (N.) howchini howchini Chapman & Crespin. Biometrical analysis of the lepidocyclinids has been made using two parameters: the degree of curvature and parameter F (the form number). The degree of curvature does not seem to be a reliable criterion for inter-regional correlation; more data are required for parameter F.
