Abstract

A small collection of fossiliferous rocks from the Nassau Range, Netherlands New Guinea, was submitted by D.B.Dow for micro-palaeontological examination. The rocks which contained excellent suites of larger and small foraminifera, came from the Meleri Beds,the Carstensz Group and the Ilaga Volcanics. Some of them were Eocene in age; the majority were Lower Miocene, some of them containing derived Eocene larger foraminifera. The microfauna of four samples from the Ilaga Volcanics consisted entirely of small planktonic and benthonic foraminifera, most probably of basal Lower Miocene age.
